A roundup of business news in Fayetteville and Cumberland County


White Trash & Colorful Accessories changes name to Cursive

The downtown shop White Trash & Colorful Accessories has announced a rebranding initiative, permanently changing its name to Cursive.

Cursive, located at 223 Franklin St., is owned by Molly and Bruce Arnold. The Arnolds also own the full building where Cursive is located, sharing space with up to four lessees, and Rude Awakening Coffee House on Hay Street.

Molly Arnold began researching a new name for the store while trying to build a new website for White Trash & Colorful Accessories, according to a release from the Cool Spring Downtown District.

She settled on Cursive because of her love of cursive handwriting and its “fancy, individual, and ornate” style, which describes the type of wares she now sells there, the release said.

Immigration justice organization receives $12K for arts event 

Fayetteville Justice For Our Neighbors has received $12,000 from the Arts Council of Fayetteville-Cumberland County for an art event in May.

The event is titled “Tour Around the World: Exploring Immigrant Experiences Through Art,” the organization said in a release.

The event “seeks to inspire the community by highlighting the impacts and talents of Cumberland County's immigrant populations’’ the release said.

It will include musical, visual and literary expressions.

“Although there have been powerful cultural events in Cumberland County in the past, this program is different in that it seeks to not only display the richness of cultures that surrounds us but also educate, empower and mobilize members of the community to embrace cultural inclusivity,” Executive Director Brandy A. Mcpherson said in the release.
