(Thurs. Jan. 19, 2012) Race and Rankin County Town-Hall Style Meeting @ Pearl Public Library

(Thursday, January 19, 2012) Join Conversations LIVE radio host Cyrus Webb as he hosts a conversation about the state of race relations in Rankin County, Mississippi.

How have things changed? Does the recent alleged hate crime in the state show that more progress and dialogue is needed? What about where the state stands on inter-racial relationships? All of this and more will be a topic for the discussion.

"We shouldn't allow others to define the kind of people we are," says Webb,36. He has hosted forums like this one over the past 5 years to discuss issues such as the sate flag, blacks and the Obama candidacy and the impact of Hip Hop on the black community. It is Webb's hope that citizens of Rankin County and others in the state can come together and find ways that we can better work together to achieve what we want for the future.

Admission is free. The public is encouraged to attend. For more information visit You can contact Cyrus Webb at or 601.896.5616.
