Conference with the Urban Summit

Jan 3, 2012

On Wednesday’s Central Standard, we’re previewing the next Urban Summit, a meeting of minds that addresses the needs and concerns of the urban core.

We'll talk with summit keynote speaker and president of the Southern Christian Leadership Conference Issac Newton Farris. He also happens to be the late Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.'s nephew.

Plus, hear from Bishop James Tindall, a Jackson County Legislator, and Karen Curls, Dean of Penn Valley Community College.

This year's Urban Summit will be Saturday, Jan. 7 at the Afrikan Centered Education Collegium at 6410 Swope Parkway.
