Equality conference welcomes one and all

April 09, 1993

Carroll Citizens for Racial Equality will have a public conference on racism and equality from 9 a.m. to noon, April 17 at St. Paul's United Church of Christ, Bond and Green streets, Westminster.

"There are three purposes for this conference," said Tom Hurst, co-planner of the event. "First, we hope to support individuals in their search for racial equality. Secondly, we want to explore how racism affects Carroll County, thus helping us to chart a course for this group."

The keynote speaker will be Rosemary Maxey, a member of the && Muscogee (Creek) Nation. She is known through her association with Western Maryland College and Mount Tabor United Church of Christ.

Participants will meet in small group sessions to discuss four focus areas:

* How and where individuals might fight racism.

* Racism as it affects health and human services.

* Racism in educational institutions.

* Religious institutions and racism.

Two student groups will share their experiences. Students from Bowling Brook Boys Home in Middleburg will tell how racism affected their childhood and children from Friendship Valley Elementary School will tell about their successful reading partnership program with an inner- city school.

No preregistration is necessary for the conference. Information: 635-8705.
