THE RACE BEAT

KHSU's Lorna Bryant attended the McKinleyville Municipal Advisory Committee for The Race Beat. Item 7 of the agenda states: "McKinleyville Municipal Advisory Committee to decide on future agenda item concerning allegations of racism in McKinleyville. The McMAC may or may not choose to place the item on a future agenda."
