Discussion about Division Street name rechange includes UTA's Dulaney
Some panelists at a Tuesday night forum at UT Arlington said changing

reported. The NAACP group, led by President Silk Littlejohn-Gamble, has
petitioned city and state officials to rename the eight-mile stretch of
state highway. Panelists included Marvin Dulaney, UT Arlington history
chairman and associate professor.

neon-at-night look-see from the Squire Haskins Photography Collection at
