Abrams: Reeducation Essential in Communities


KEDM hosts "Policy And A Pint today at 5 p.m.  The discussion topic is Race Relations and Law Enforcement.

Michael Abrams, founder of Innovative Leaders of Tomorrow, an economic development and advocacy group, serves as a panelist in the discussion.  Abrams feels there needs to be a push toward re-education of the black community.  He believes more leaders could provide influence and demonstrate a positive image.

He says the biggest concern going forward is propaganda.  "The image of blacks is not a good one, it's misleading.  They (the media) point out the negatives, that creates a mindset that all blacks are perceived that way."

The public discussion is at 5 p.m. at Avocado's Restaurant on North 18th Street in Monroe.
