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.
