“I’m excited about September 26th!  It’s a full-day packed with opportunities to address, from a Biblical perspective, some of the issues surrounding race relations and the opportunity for Mississippians to be involved in leading the way to improve race relations. I believe Mississippi can and will lead the Nation in this effort.  We encourage Mississippians to make race relations a top priority and to be at this important event.”
