Recently, several individuals and community organizations joined together to March from Grove Hall to Dudley, ultimately converging on a forum dealing with Black/Latino Family and Relationships. The march was highlighting Fatherhood, Family, Education and dealt with issues plaguing our community Drugs, Crime, Guns, Violence, etc. While there were several people who were in support, there were some sentiments expressed that I think are examples of the very difficult position we are in.
The below comments come from the Herald Article
