LWV-CA Hosts ‘Racing Racism’ with New Braunfels MLK Association

Thousands turned out for New Braunfels’ 5th Annual MLK Jr. March last January. President of the New Braunfels MLK Jr. Association Bishop Michael Franklin spoke at the event.

League of Women Voters of the Comal Area (LWV-CA) hosts ‘Racing Racism,’ a Zoom meeting scheduled for 7 p.m. Dec. 16.

New Braunfels MLK Association’s (NBMLK) Bishop Michael Franklin is the featured speaker. He describes the program as dealing with “the perpetual struggle of our nation’s attempt to outrun racism’s dark past in our current day.”

“The events of the last few months here in Comal County have shown that not only can we not outrun the history of racism but we must accept that every corner of America is touched by the effects,” said LWV-CA President Roxanna Deane. “The League is grateful to have Bishop Franklin explore this topic with us.”

NBMLK is a nonprofit organization formed to honor Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. and to promote activities in support of his teaching and legacy. Recently Bishop Franklin and NBMLK helped organize the New Braunfels IDEA Forum, a diversity and equity council that examines racial, economic and social inequities, and citizen access issues, and promotes dialogue within the community.

The public is invited to join the Dec. 16 Zoom meeting (ID: 899 8656 3219 password: 270440) or watch a live- stream on Facebook. The meeting will be recorded for later viewing on the LWVCA YouTube channel @LWVComal.
