From The Newsroom: Dallas Zoo Approved To Take In African Elephants, ‘Martyr’ Takes The Stage

Jan 22, 2016

The top local news stories this evening from the KERA Newsroom: The Dallas Zoo has announced it's received permission from U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service to take in elephants from Swaziland, Africa. The Dallas Zoo says the elephants in question are in danger of being killed.

Some conservationists are against the move saying elephants should never be in captivity.

With suicide bombers in the Middle East and self-professed terrorists attacking in France and the US, Second Thought Theaters' staging of the play ‘Martyr’ couldn’t be more timely. But the religious militancy preached here actually comes from a young Christian. KERA’s Jerome Weeks sits down with Justin Martin to talk about this Texas premiere of a German play.
