The Bulloch County Branch of the NAACP and a new organization, VillageBuilders, together are hosting a public forum called the State of the Black Community, 11 a.m. Saturday in the Agape Worship Center, 810 W. Grady St. “We’ve worked together to make this event possible,” said VillageBuilders President Jonathan McCollar. About nine panelists are expected to take part, he said, and time will be allotted for question-and-answer exchanges with the audience. “We’re going to look at the relationship between African-Americans and law enforcement…, poverty and unemployment in the African-American community…, issues as far as youth in the community…,” McCollar said, when asked what issues may be addressed.
