CSRA Dialogue and Revival begins

March 12, 2007

A two-day event in which community leaders aim to help young black males kicked off today.

It's called the CSRA Dialogue and Revival, and it's happening at Antioch Baptist Church.

Organizers from various churches say the goal is to find solutions to things like increased crime rates and kids dropping out of school.

It started with a session this afternoon.

Augusta Commissioners Betty Beard and J.R. Hatney, Dr. Charles Smith with Augusta's NAACP, and businessman and former mayoral candidate Steven Kendrick were among the presenters.

"The church has to lead the way and take the initiative of bringing this young people back into the mainstream of society," Rev. K.B. Martin said.
