August 31, 2011

Pastor Gilbert and Rev. Gilbert led a protest to stop trucks from being able to enter or exit the St. Elizabeth construction site.  Statistics show that Clark Construction refused to hire African American workers to work on this site, and are hiring workers from out of town and placing them in motels to work instead of hiring blacks within Ward 7 and Ward 8 where the site is located.  (See gallery for more pictures)
