Volunteers promoting careful listening and candid discussions between Statesboro's African-American and law enforcement communities hope to move forward now based on what they learned last year. An open gathering of the Beloved Community Steering Committee is set for 6-8 p.m. Wednesday at Rebecca’s Café, also known as the old Julia P. Bryant School cafeteria at 400 Donnie Simmons Way. The group is inviting all who have shown interest previously and others who would like to join.
