Al Sharpton Due in West Memphis Saturday

WEST MEMPHIS, AR - Noted civil rights activist Reverend Al Sharpton is to be in Region 8 tomorrow.

Sharpton is expected to be in West Memphis for a 7:30 p.m. ceremony in which the name of a local street will be changed to honor the memory of 12-year-old DeAunta Farrow, who was fatally shot by a police officer outside the Steeple Chase Apartments on June 22.

The West Memphis City Council recently approved a resolution to change the name of a section of North 24th Street to DeAunta Farrow Drive.
