Kingsport to honor MLK with new street designation

There are four blocks of a street in Kingsport named Martin Luther King Jr. Drive.

Next Friday, the extension of that street will display his full name, not just part of it.

It will also put Kingsport in the history books.

Lincoln Street, from Wilcox Drive to John B. Dennis Bypass, will soon be designated the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Memorial Parkway.

“It’s the appropriate way to recognize someone who made such a difference in the lives of not just African-Americans, but everybody in America and particularly Kingsport,” said City Manager Jeff Fleming.


According to numbers from the Kingsport Traffic Department, that 2.3 mile section of Lincoln Street averages about 9,500 vehicles per day. Bill Albright, transportation planning manager, says that although Lincoln…

Review: ‘From U Street to the Cotton Club’ by The In Series

Rising from its roots in the Deep South, African American music journeyed north with the Great Migration, invigorating urban culture with rhythms derived from shouts to spirituals, work songs and hollers. In the early 20th century, a mélange of Black music began to thrive in Washington, D.C. — home to the largest number of African Americans in any U.S. city by 1915.

Can’t-Miss Caribbean Dishes Coming to Cane on H Street NE Next Month

Photo of cow heel souse by Chris RimChef Peter Prime makes eating chicken feet particularly appetizing. When his restaurant, Cane, opens next month on H Street NE he’ll prepare them in a style similar to how he enjoyed them as a kid in Trinidad. After the chicken feet are cooked through, he pulls them out of their cooking liquid and tosses them in lime juice, cucumber, and hot peppers for a quick pickling effect. Then it’s into the deep fryer before a final coating of ginger caramel. 

Prime first made a splash in D.C. at Spark in Bloomingdale, where he cooked Caribbean-inspired barbecue with flair. (Spark is currently closed as it transitions into a new business model focused on tasting menu dinners, catering, and events.)

The rising chef’s next project will be more personal. “It’s…
