Conversations about Race in Mobile

Mobile United and the City of Mobile are launching a series of “Community Conversations” about race relations in Mobile.  The first one will be Monday, August 18 at the Alabama School of Math & Science at 6:00 p.m.

The event will feature Alabama attorney Stephen Foster Black and Reverend Dr. Robert Turner, who will set the stage for the year-long public process to follow.  The discussion will be fueled by a survey designed to gauge public opinion about race in Mobile.  Joél Lewis, Ph.D., co-chair of Community Conversations said, “We want to really be positive and optimistic about how is it that we can make things better, together”.

You can find the survey at the City of Mobile’s website and on all computers of the Mobile Public Library.  Paper copies of the survey will be available inside each location of the Mobile Public Library as well as the information desk inside Government Plaza.
