Little Rock Church to Host Presentation on Violence in the Black Community


“Before The Casket” is an emotional yet powerful presentation that is designed to openly discuss the impact of homicides and violence in the black community, while encouraging a non-violent approach to conflict that normally precedes violent deaths. 

The presenters will include a police officer, homicide detective, coroner and funeral director.

Attendees will also hear from three families who have lost a loved one to homicide. More recently; the young college student at the University of Arkansas at Pine Bluff who was shot to death on September 23, 2015 as he slept in his off-campus apartment.

The presentation will be held Saturday, April 9 at 11 a.m. at Pilgrim Valley Baptist Church located at 1821 Wolfe Street in Little Rock.
