NAACP CANCELS TURKEY DAY BOYCOTT OF TEXAS STADIUM
Published November 8, 1994
The NAACP may be close to reaching an agreement with Cowboys Owner Jerry Jones over charges the team lacks minorities in the front office and among stadium vendors. The group had threatened a Thanksgiving Day boycott of Texas Stadium and was prepared to picket on November 24. NAACP's Southwest Region Director Shannon Reeves said he was "very pleased" with the discussions, adding: "The boycott is on hold until we finalize the agreement with the Cowboys." The two sides met for three hours yesterday based on complaints by the NAACP that no black and few Hispanic vendors are now doing business with Texas Stadium Corporation, and that most of the Cowboys front office personnel is white (Vito Stellino, Baltimore SUN, 11/8).
