Local leaders aim to motivate youth

Humility, focus and co-operation with police officers were the main themes discussed as prominent men from the area spoke to students, all of whom were black and Hispanic boys, during a forum entitled “A Conversation with Our Sons” at Crossroad Academy the morning of Thursday, Dec. 18.

Ten students had the opportunity to ask one question each to the panelists during the forum. Many of the questions revolved around how minority men should conduct themselves when dealing with police officers.
