Local groups want to quash segregation, gang violence


WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) -- Local churches are teaming up with the group "Boots on the Ground" to try to quash segregation in the Port City. The group wants to bring the community together by remembering the race riot of 1898.

Supporters will meet at the 1898 Memorial on the corner of 3rd and Davis Street this weekend starting at 9 a.m. Church leaders and even rapper Snoop Dog's mom will be there to also address issues with gang violence.
