There are still so many unanswered questions and tension between the black community and the police force.  The community wants answers. But what’s next?

NC NAACP President Rev. Barber explains what people can do:

  • If you have eyewitness knowledge about what is happening, please get that information to the family’s attorney to help sort out what actually happened.
  • There is a meeting tomorrow at 3 p.m. at Bibleway Church to discuss what people can do to help.
  • Pray for the family and when a call for support is made, show up.
