During the Orlando City Council meeting, held on October 21, 2013, Council Member Daisy Lynum made comments that dealt with the town hall meeting scheduled for that evening.
Commissioner Daisy Lynum was obviously distressed about the Orange County NAACP special scheduling of a town hall meeting to possibly discuss the proposed soccer stadium that is to be built in the Parramore area.
I meet regularly with my friend David Rucker, who is very active in several organizations and the president of at least two of them. We generally meet in one of the meeting rooms at the Village Square on Goldwyn Ave. Sometimes we walk the halls an look at Black commerce at work. The salons, barber shops, restaurants, attorney offices, accountant offices and other Black businesses were proud to be located in a building where Black commerce has been housed for decades.
By Larry Adams I wasn't born in Orlando but this is my "Hometown". I came here in 1957 at the age of three. I lived with one of my dad's brothers for a minute before we moved to Carver Court. Bldg.15. Apt 6, the Southern end of the "Parramore District". The area south of Gore street was mostly white and they considered themselves living in "Holden Heights".
