Black and Latino activists join forces to address Spring High School stabbing and bridge racial divide

(Source: Houston Millions More Movement Ministry of Justice) A very important press conference is being organized by leaders, activists and community members from both the African-American and Latino communities to address the tension between "the Black and the Brown" that apparently played a role in the stabbing death of 17 year old Joshua Broussard at Spring High School.

The press conference will be an attempt to provide a visual and a strong voice of unity between both communities and to express some aspects of the "shared struggle" that should bring Black and Latinos together instead of causing us to fight one another.

 "We want to set the tone and the atmosphere of peace, unity, tolerance and understand between Black and Latino students on the day before they are set to return to school", said Community Activist Deric Muhammad. 

The press conference is set for Sunday, September 8th. The press conference will also address what school officials and the community must do to join forces in preventing any further bloodshed, loss of life and gang activity within its walls.

Where: Spring High School 19428 I-45 Spring, TX 
Who: Black and Latino Community Standing in Unity 
What: Press Conference 
When: SUNDAY, Sept. 8th, 2013 Time: 4pm
