In Case You Thought the Sonny Carson Debate Was Over…

On Union Street in Brooklyn this weekend, I came across a poster that said the “black community said yes” and “4 white people said no” to renaming a street after controversial activist Sonny Carson. (My mostly failed attempts at cell phone pictures of the poster are here and here.)

There is also a rally this morning in Foley Square in support of the Carson renaming.

And a bill that excludes Carson from a list of streets to be renamed will be discussed by the City Council on the Wednesday.

Sydney Beveridge has more on this stuff over here.
