WFMD Radio: New Horizons Support Network To Hold Panel Discussion On Race Relations

Posted Wednesday, March 11th 2015 @ 1pm  by Sherry Greenfield

New Horizons Support Network is holding its second panel discussion on the impact of race relations in Frederick County.

The event will be held from 2 to 6 p.m. Saturday, March 21, at Dublin Roasters Coffee, 1780 N. Market St., in Frederick.

Anastasia Rosen-Jones, the network's executive director, said the event will touch on the recent tensions between police and the African-American community in Ferguson and New York, along with the racist rants led by two members of the University of Oklahoma's Alpha Epsilon fraternity.

"It will be session number two out of five that are planned," Rosen-Jones said. "We did the first in January. We will be doing it from here forth, once a month through June at the Dublin Roasters on Market Street."

Rosen-Jones said race relations in Frederick County will be the centerpiece of the discussion.

"How could it not be important, after what happened in Ferguson with the young man, the young black man, killed and all that came out of that when the officer was not indicted," she said.
