Wilmington in Black and White starts race relations classes in September

A group of community leaders is gearing up for part two of a race relations class that kicked off last year. Wilmington in Black and White was held over the course of several weeks. It is open to the public and proved to be very popular, so part two will soon start up. The class explored the history and future of race relations in Wilmington, to give people a greater perspective of the issue. A committee called the Big Picture Talkers sponsored the course. "This course is an opportunity for older people to lead the way and lead the charge in creating better race relations in the Wilmington and surrounding areas,” said Kimberly McLaughlin-Smith of Big Picture Talker. “It's very necessary and it behooves all of us to invest." The course starts September 17th. You can find more information at

Race Relations

I would like to suggest that all those who attend,"Wilmington in Black and White," read the book, Drinking From The Cup, by Doug Saint Carter. One Man's Experiences, Efforts and Observations of Improving Race Relations. It's about his journey through a similar class or study group in Jacksonville, Fl a few years ago. It's a real eye opener cover to cover.
