The seven candidates for LA Unified’s open District 1 seat are gathering again tomorrow for another forum to address answer questions and address issues facing the district.
Sponsored by community groups and the host site, Holman United Methodist Church, located in south-central LA, the event will honor the 60th anniversary of the Supreme Court’s Brown v Board of Education decision that ended segregation in public schools.
“Our event will reflect the quality and equality in education now, as to how it relates to District 1,” said Rev. Kelvin Sauls, pastor of the church.
The format for the event will be slightly different from other forums. Audience members will be invited to write out questions on cards as they enter, and a panel will consolidate them to keep the event moving along.
The moderator is T’Keyah Crystal Keymah, an actress best known as an original cast member in the TV show, “In Living Color.”
