Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. once said, …I am convinced that men hate each other because they fear each other. They fear each other because they don’t know each other, and they don’t know each other because they don’t communicate with each other, and they don’t communicate with each other because they are separated from each other. We know these courageous conversations will not solve all matters regarding race relations, but we do believe this is a step in the right direction.
