Race: Let's Talk About It
Young African American men dying at the hands of white police officers. White police officers gunned down by African American men. Protests in the streets - the rallying cry, "Black Lives Matter"! Opinion polls stating the racial divide in America is growing. With this social unrest as the backdrop, Another View, along with our partners, the Virginia Wesleyan College Center for Religious Studies, and the Fort Monroe Foundation, will launch a new community initiative called "Race: Let's Talk About It".
