A sculpture by Bryan Massey Sr., a professor at the University of Central Arkansas, honoring Silas Hunt, the first African-American law student at the University of Arkansas, was dedicated at the UA campus last week.

In an article in The City Wire, Massey says his stone carving, which embraces a medallion honoring Hunt, was inspired by a scene in the movie "The Lion King" in which King Mufasa presents his infant son, Simba, to the pride.

Massey, who was born in Greensboro, N.C., has work at the Sculpture Ranch created in Texas by painter Benini and his wife, Lorraine.

  • LIVE LIFE CHILL NOT DEAD DONE GONE

    Contrary to rumor, Live Life Chill, the bar/restaurant in the erstwhile Revolution Taco and Tequila Lounge space at the corner of Cantrell and President Clinton Avenue, is not closed. Service manager Lindsey McFadin called the Times this afternoon to say a rumor the bar had closed was killing business; by 3 p.m., no one had been in. The Times, too, had heard the rumor from a number of sources. What has changed, McFadin said, is that the bar is now only open from 11 a.m. to 2 a.m. Friday and Saturday and 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Sunday.
