This contest is fueled by the following news: Workers that were involved in remodeling an old dime store uncovered a relic than more often than not is found in museums and history books -- signs with the words "white" and "colored" painted over spots where water fountains were once hung. Charles Moenning, head of the construction project, indicated that he was pretty amazed with the find at the S.H. Kress store that was being converted into loft apartments and retail space. The black letters stand out significantly on the beige plaster wall, a reminder of the days when segregation ruled the South. Blacks and white were kept separate in public places, including schools, stores and public transportation. Mayor Jim Dailey stated that the signs should be preserved in a museum, referring to them as a dramatic reminder of a world that people do not want to revist.
