BHM Round Table Calls Minority Communities to Action
Attendee suggests public education financing be identified as an “investment,” not an “expenditure”
In its Tenth Anniversary Black History Month Celebration, Elmont Online and Highlighting Success, Inc. presented a round table discussion that centered on hot-button issues uppermost on the minds of minority community residents. The current economic climate, coupled with attitudes among public officials in Mineola, Hauppauge, Albany and Washington, D.C., have brought a readiness to look for answers to persistent challenges and traditional policies.
The round table panel at the 2013 Black History Month Celebration engaged in an open discussion of three significant issues: Public Education Financing, Immigration and Health Policy. It was moderated by Dr. Marsha Darling, Director and Professor, the Center for African, Black and Caribbean Studies at Adelphi University.
