Community activist brings seminar on racism to the Valley

Local News

A community activist is starting a series of workshops on racism. 

Ron King developed a seminar called “The Unveiling of Racism in America” after preaching about racism at majority white churches.

The workshops are discussion-based, with an emphasis on group conflict resolution.

On Saturday, King teamed up with the First Presbyterian Church of Mineral Ridge for his first session. The goal was to get people to learn to listen.

“Listen to other people’s views, experiences, pains and hurts,” he said.

King will host his next workshop at the Canfield Presbyterian Church later this summer.
