WORCESTER— Management at the Worcester Public Library headed off a potentially tense situation by asking a group planning to meet in the building to reschedule.
Black Culture Movie Night and North East White Power were both scheduled to use library facilities on Wednesday night.
Russell James, a representative of the white power group, tells The Telegram & Gazette he postponed his group’s monthly meeting at the request of the head librarian. He says his group, which has been meeting at the library since November, would not have caused any trouble had the two events gone on simultaneously.
Parlee Jones-Thompson, who organized the Black Culture Movie Night, said she was relieved to hear the white power group had rescheduled. She did not know if any protests had been planned.
