Anti-racism event moved up after Brainerd assault
BRAINERD, Minn. (AP) -- An anti-racism event that was scheduled for May has been moved up to this weekend in Baxter after a black man was beaten in an alleged racial attack two weeks ago.
The free workshop will be held Saturday. Its sponsors include the First Congregational United Church of Christ, led by the Rev. Deborah Celley.
She tells the Brainerd Dispatch the workshop will be geared to people who never considered that racism could be a problem in their area.
