Johnny C. Clifton, formerly of the Brooklyn All-Stars Gospel Group, will open the roundtable forum and luncheon with Gospel renditions.
The event will be held at the Douglass Community Center, 1185 Pennsylvania Ave., in Southern Pines 12-4 p.m.
This will be the sixth annual event for CCFCA Breaking the Chain Outreach, founded in 2016, said Isaac Jenkins, CEO/founder and Angela Schwarz, president.
In a statement, the two said, "This is not a Democrat or Republican Roundtable. We are coming together to make a difference, not to complain. We understand that if our problems are systematic, then we are systematic.
"Discussions are an exchange of thoughts and knowledge. It is important that our communities achieve economic justice and voting rights protection."
Public participation is encouraged by RSVP at (910) 528-1038 for seating. Lunch is free. Doors open at 11 a.m.
