Proposal to rename Prairie View A&M thoroughfare ‘Sandy Bland Parkway’

PRAIRIE VIEW, Texas – Prairie View students will join with family and friends of Sandra Bland in a “Walk of Solidarity” next week.

On August 25 at 4:27 p.m., walkers will meet at the City of Prairie View’s City Hall, where the council will vote on a measure to rename the main thoroughfare leading to Prairie View A&M University, Sandy Bland Parkway.

The walk will depart from the Memorial Student Center on campus and proceed south one mile on University Drive to Business Highway U.S. 290 East.

The council action is the first item on the mayor’s agenda. The council meeting will begin at 6 p.m.
