dc.description.abstractThis report explores racial tensions among city leaders and residents in Crockett, Texas, a city in the rural and heavily conservative eastern region of the state, resulting from a petition created by the city’s white mayor to abolish the city’s economic development corporation, headed by its first black executive director. Many residents’ negative perception of the mayor is exacerbated by her status as the county’s Republican Party chair, her vocal support of President Donald Trump, her alleged discriminatory treatment of employees at the restaurant she owns and a pair of photos taken at her restaurant that many residents believe are racist
