Over the next couple of days, Philadelphia Mayor James Young and Meridian Mayor Cheri Barry will be hosting a Civil Rights conference at the Pearl River Resort in Choctaw.
Mayor Young says several experts will be brought in to discuss the next step in bringing communities closer together.
"Avoiding the pitfalls of the past," Young says. "And it's very important that we all get involved and talk about what we need and what we expect from each other. "
The conference runs through this Tuesday and is being held at the Silverstar Casino in Neshoba County. For more information, visit www.philadelphiams.us.
