    Jackson Boulevard: Palimpsest of Urban Life and Southern Myth by Randal Hall | OffCite Blog
    Randal Hall is Editor, Journal of Southern History, and Associate Professor of History at Rice University. Jackson Boulevard is short. Running from Waugh Drive to Montrose Boulevard and a stone's throw beyond, it covers barely more than two east-to-west blocks. Even a near-sighted bookworm like me can see from end to end.

    A Brief History of Houston Pride
    When people look back on the gay-rights movement of the 1970s, they tend to think in terms of New York City and San Francisco. But Houston was just as active in the last half of that turbulent decade.
