They discussed how the pandemic’s effect on the state’s African American community. The civil rights organization’s president, Kenneth Huston, says there’s a major concern for how urban housing will be impacted long term.
Residents could have close proximity with others in those facilities. Huston says he has spoken with leaders across the state about forming a task force to provide health and safety education.
