10/30 logoMayor Langford is inviting all African American males in Birmingham, Alabama to attend a crime summit tomorrow evening beginning at 6 p.m. at Fair Park Arena. Two inmates from the St. Clair Correctional Facility will be on hand as well as a presentation of Plan 10/30 Why Am I Dying?/Do You Care?, an effort to reach out to this particular group and “change their mindset.”

There will also be a gun buy-back conducted by the SCLC tomorrow afternoon from 4:30 p.m. – 6 p.m. This flier has been received by The Terminal for purposes of distribution to anyone interested in attending tomorrow evening.

The mayor announced that he did not intend to allow the media to attend the event; we also assume that he will not allow new media to attend either. If you do attend tomorrow, we’d appreciate not necessarily a report on what was said, but for you to share your thoughts on the event.
