Forum will address race relations in Norwood

NORWOOD, OH (FOX19) -

A public forum Monday will address race relations in Norwood in light of a letter sent by the city's mayor addressing “race baiting black leaders and cowardly elected officials.”

New Day Norwood will host the meeting at Xavier University's Bellarmine Chapel at 6:30 p.m.

Petitions and community discussions were sparked by Mayor Thomas Williams' racially charged letter of support to Norwood Police was posted to Facebook last month.

“Illustrated the divide that exists between Norwood leadership and the large community of people in and around Norwood who are working for racial equity and necessary criminal justice reform,” A New Day Norwood described the letter on Facebook.

Childcare will be provided at Monday's forum and residents of neighboring communities are welcome.
