Hoxie to be showcased at capitol
The city of Hoxie will be the subject of a historic display at the Arkansas State Capitol in Little Rock this fall.
The exhibit will feature information on the establishment of the city, as well as its history through the 1960s, including the desegregation of Hoxie School.
A meeting will be held on Thursday at noon at Hoxie City Hall regarding the display.
Ethel Tompkins, who is helping spearhead the effort, said the displays can benefit from a variety of items, including artifacts, information and photos. Organizers are specifically looking for newspapers from the time of the Hoxie integration.
"Anyone who is interested is invited to attend the meeting," she said.
Those who have anything of interest for the display can attend the meeting, as well, or contact Tompkins, Frances Green or Hoxie City Hall.
