Although the conference will focus on overcoming African-American conflicts, the forum is open to everyone.
“In building the bridge, I would like for all of us to come together and have a true understanding about the issues, concerns and needs of the community as a whole. Once again, I state, the aim is to unite the community by reflecting on the concerns of African-Americans.
“The conference’s main purpose is to present a forum of discussions on issues that affect the African-American culture,” he said.
“By incorporating various cultures into our city, celebrating diversity and working together, we can not only battle culture shock but build the bridge in our city that reflects the strength and goodwill of Danville. The city of Danville motto is “Danville at the Corner of Progress & History.”
“We have made some history and progress, but there is a need for change and innovation to continue to make history and progress. I am about change and innovation. I feel that Danville is where history and progress can be achieved,” Davis said.
