Greenville residents pushing to end racism

GREENVILLE, N.C. (WNCT) – Dozens of people came together in Greenville to talk about how to end racism.

The city’s Human Relations Council hosted the discussion to hear how racism affected people in the town.

They talked about how power, stereotypes, and privilege are roots of the problem.

Organizer Rev. Bob Hudak hopes to inspire people to end racism.

“It really starts with getting together face to face with people listening to one another’s stories making connections,” he said. “Then the impact is that I become perhaps a better person”

The council plans to host more events like this to check on their progress.
