Top Stories: Silent Protest To Take Place In Dallas; Hip-Hop Festival Highlights Dallas Diversity
Main Street Garden Park in downtown Dallas.

The top local stories this afternoon from KERA News: A protest against police brutality is scheduled to take place Friday night in downtown Dallas. The march comes three weeks after five police officers were killed following a peaceful protest against policing tactics. 

The Dallas Hip-Hop Dance Festival is marking its fifth year. This weekend’s event is drawing people from across the state for workshops and a competitive showcase at the Majestic Theatre. Jenny Smith, the choreographer of the Officials, the dance crew who won last year’s festival, talks about the event.

Other stories this afternoon:

  • Texas has fined Blue Bell Creameries $850,000 for last year’s deadly listeria outbreak, but the Brenham ice cream maker could wind up paying only a fraction of that. 
  • Training camp for the Dallas Cowboys starts tomorrow in Oxnard. It’s the 11th time since 2001 that the team is on the West Coast.
