What are your Turkey Day plans? The Houston Thanksgiving Day Parade began in 1949, when Santa arrived at Union Station and rode his sleigh to the downtown Foley’s. Since then, the Thanksgiving Day parade has gone through a few changes but today, it remains a 68 year-old holiday tradition showcasing the Houston community and entertaining parade-goers lining the streets on Thanksgiving morning. Join us again this year as we embrace the holiday spirit on Thursday, November 23, 2017 with the 68th Annual H-E-B Thanksgiving Day Parade. http://www.houstontx.gov/thanksgivingparade/

Fifth Ward gives roots to history (and herstory) again! "Simmons grew up in Houston’s Fifth Ward and remembers watching her older brother Clarence play basketball at Prairie View. (He was on the same team as a future NBA hall of famer, Zelmo Beaty.) Returning to Texas has helped her reconnect with the 11 siblings she hasn’t lived near in decades." Simmons was was the first African-American to lead an Ivy League school and TIME magazine’s 2001 best college president. During 11 years at the helm of Brown University, she instituted need-blind admissions for students, created a initiative to study the university’s historical ties to slavery and led a $1.6 billion fundraising campaign. Once she is officially confirmed by the Texas A&M University System Board of Regents, she’ll be Prairie View’s first female president. http://koxe.com/how-prairie-view-am-lured-a-former-ivy-league-president-out-of-retirement/ #nickelproud
