HOPEWELL, Va. (AP) - A Hopewell street is being renamed in honor of a civil rights activist, the Rev. Curtis Harris.
The Progress-Index (http://bit.ly/1f67hYS) reports that the council had also considered a proposal to include the name of Curtis‘ late wife, Ruth, in renaming the street. Ruth Harris was an advocate of her husband’s activism. She died in May 2011.
The council, however, decided to stick with just one name.
