Since Joe Carroll has offered his services to the City of Coatesville at last night's Coatesville City Council Meeting I am reposting a recording and transcript of Joe speaking at the Second Baptist Church. It contains his speech on made at the dedication ceremony of Zachariah Walker Memorial in 2006 on prejudice.
I recorded this at the Community Information Meeting on Saturday May 8, 2010 at the Second Baptist Church in Coatesville. The occasion was an open discussion between the City of Coatesville community, law enforcement officers, community leaders and church leaders concerning the accidental death of a 13 year old Coatesville youth driving a stolen vehicle and pursued by Coatesville Police the previous Wednesday.
The recording is terrible. There is a reverberation in the ≠Second Baptist church and I had no means to keep it out of the recording. I transcribed it as well as I could. If you want to see more about that community meeting put "Second Baptist" into the "Search this Blog".
