Beyond the Headlines: Law Enforcement and the African-American Community

John Lewis and Mark Davidson

The Faith & Justice Committee Lunch and Speaker Series, In My Backyard: Faith and Current Events, returns for its third season on Thursday, September 24, from 12:15 to 1:15 p.m. in the Colhoun Room. The program is the first of a three-part series titled, “Beyond the Headlines: Law Enforcement and the African-American Community.”

In response to the many recent news reports of deadly encounters between law enforcement and black men and women, the series will examine this problem, its complexity and its meaning for each of us. The September 24 session will be a conversation with John Lewis, St. Paul’s Building and Grounds Supervisor, a Mason and former football player and winner of the Brian Piccolo Award at Wake Forest University, and Mark Davidson, a retired N.C. Highway Patrol Officer and candidate for Deacon in the Episcopal Church. Also participating in the conversation will be St. Paul’s Rector the Rev. D. Dixon Kinser and the Rev. Corey Miller. Details of the October 22 and November 19 programs will be announced.

Bring your own lunch. Beverages will be provided.
