No doubt they're honoring Hall for her 30 years of teaching school in DISD; or for her founding the Dallas Minority Repertory Theater; or for her estimable body of work on stage and screen. (In awarding her a special jury prize at Cannes for her work in The Ladykillers, jury president Quentin Tarantino called her "a force of nature.") Oh, no, that's not it at all, is it, Magic Press Release?
Irma P. Hall, the actress best known for her role as Big Mama Joseph in the film Soul Food, joins Mayor Pro Tem Dwaine R. Caraway and community leaders to unveil the latest public education campaign against 'sagging'. The practice of wearing pants, shorts, skirts, or similar articles of clothing below the waist exposing undergarments in a public place is common among some youth.Megan's going to find out just what the what that might be.
As part of Councilman Caraway's ongoing effort to stop this practice, Clear Channel Outdoor will donate billboard space on two highway billboards and 20 smaller billboards across the City.
"Beyond protecting the public from acts of indecency, this is an effort to help young adults improve their self-image," Caraway said. "And this time, we have a special message for little girls."
