The community is invited to attend the third forum of the ongoing series, “Black Lives Matter: A Quest for Solutions,” on Tuesday, Nov. 1, 7 to 9 p.m., at Browns Mill Recreation Center, 5101 Browns Mill Road, Lithonia.
The forum entitled “A Community Conversation on Perception verses Reality” will address how the media, society and law enforcement influence how others view Black Lives Matter.

The forum is an effort to discuss how the community can come together and influence change. The panelists include State Rep. Dar’shan Kendrick; Attorney Gerald Griggs; Valerie Morgan, Editor, On Common Ground; Anastasia Brown Alvarado, MD, Child Psychiatrist; and Sgt. Kenneth Lively.
The public is invited to join the conversation and ask questions.
