'No Tears Suite' about 'Little Rock Nine' shares message of hope in Tulsa debut

One of the pivotal moments in the Civil Rights Movement took place on Sept. 23, 1957, when nine Black students entered Central High School in Little Rock, Arkansas. The students had to be escorted into the building by police, and guarded by members of the National Guard, to protect them from the violence of fellow citizens determined to prevent the racial integration of schools.

Larry McAdams

LARRY MCADAMS grew up at in a small town in the bootheel of Missouri at a time when people left their doors unlocked and children roamed the streets playing until dark. In Hayti, Missouri, his family ran a grocery store and his uncle managed three cinemas. Larry was more enchanted with the movies than he was with stocking shelves, and by the age of 14 he could be found running the projectors at the Joy Theater boosted up by an old coke box so he could reach the controls. Larry continued working for his uncle while he was in high school, but he still found time to play football as the running back for the Hayti Indians, to participate in the school band playing the trumpet, and to perform as the male lead in Annie Get Your Gun. His diverse interests continued into college and throughout his life.

“Like a magpie,” new storytelling project at Hendrix collects vignettes from underexplored Arkansas communities

The AV Arkansas website leads with the motto “citizen storytellers,” and it’s easy to feel cheered by those stories — as the site says, “multimedia documentaries exploring the people, places, and wonders of Arkansas.” A collaboration between Hendrix College students and professors Maxine Payne and Tyrone Jaeger, AV Arkansas feels like the warmest of curio shops with handcrafted objects such as the beguiling portraits of citizens of the African-American-founded town of Twin Groves. Or an audio interview with a cancer-ridden bamboo expert. Or a video interview with a farmer/animal lover who, except for the cell phone strapped to his hip, looks as if he walked out of a 15th-century painting. We talked to Payne and Jaeger about their project and the value of stories in our small, complicated state.

OPINION | MUSIC REVIEW: Live audience returns for Arkansas Symphony's free 'Celebrate' concert

The Price was right. So was the Dvorak, the Gershwin tune and the opening fanfare. The Bernstein was a little sloppy. The stage microphones were perhaps a little too hot. Thursday night at Little Rock’s Robinson Center Performance Hall, the Arkansas Symphony welcomed its first live audience in a while with a “Celebrate Little Rock, Together” concert, a freebie thank-you to the community for its support through the pandemic and a preview of the 2021-22 season. The concert was also simulcast to an outdoor screen at West 15th and South Chester streets, near Philander Smith College, in Little Rock’s Dunbar neighborhood.
