CLiC: About the Local

Page history last edited by Sunchai Hamcumpai 10 years, 6 months ago

In our years together, CLiC has compiled a rich variety of resources concerning race relations in Northeast Texas. 

 

Goal 1: Ensure all artifacts available here are processed into the Northeast Texas Digital Collections so future researchers and videographers (etc) can access them. Sustainability is crucial for this work in local contexts. Where possible, include information about whether or not it exists in Northeast Texas Digital Collections and, if not, where it lives now and how it might get there. 

Goal 2: Provide a place for those working on current video remix projects to (a) see what's already available and (b) add to existing artifacts what's found in the field. 

 

We are continuing to update throughout project. Please check back frequently. This is, of course, a workspace so reliably messy. :)

 

Documentaries in Progress.  

 


Key: (A)-Available in the Northeast Texas Digital Collections, (U)--Unknown status, ie: we need to find out if the item exists in the NTDC and, if it doesn't, how to get it there (if possible). (N)--Not available in the NTDC; (IA)--Original artifact in possession of the author/original owner; unsure if the author will allow us to process it into the NTDC; (OA)--Owner authorizes processing into the NTDC (if so, list name of owner and provide contact information)

Description

The Black History Month panel discussion was held on February 23, 2010 at Commerce Public Library. The speakers were Ivory Moore, Harry Turner, Billy Reed, and James Green. They were representing the Norris Community. The event is a part of cooperation between Texas A&M-Commerce and the Commerce Public Library. The Heirloom Project was another project relating to railroad history. Quay Throgmorton, the City’s mayor, read a proclamation to the City of Commerce, announcing the celebration of Black History Month. Moore introduced his roles when he was serving in the city council for the Norris Community. Hendrix also involves with the community for church activity.

 

People from Norris usually worked for university in the food service and some of them worked as domestic maids. There were local shops such as Charlie Smith’s store, a BBQ shop, and a barber shop. The Norris School was built in the 1950s on the land donated by Phillip A. Norris. In addition, Norris was the one who helped to bring a railroad into Commerce. The first principal was A.C. Williams. It was the all-black school famous for its basket ball team. Turner played on the team and led them to the Texas State Championship in his junior year. They played in the Dallas area, and neighboring states. The scoreboard only displayed 2 digits, so some games the lower score showing on scoreboard perplexed audiences, but actually the team had reached over one hundred points instead. Student uniforms were funded by the State but were not given every year, usually four to five years apart.

 

People of the Norris Community gathered at the church to discuss their living needs such as sewer, pavement, and employment. When the Norris Community Club (NCC) was formed into the charter, their needs were heard by the City and the university. The Journalism Department helped by publishing their needs in the newspaper. The university staff and faculty such as Ivory Moore, Dr. Talbot, and Dr. Gold got involved with the community by supporting the organization. NCC helped local residents with employment in the Sheriff Department in Greenville and Commerce. In 1975, Moore was elected to be a city commissioner.
