Civil Rights and Eminent Domain
The State Advisory Committee of the U.S. Commission on Civil Rights will hold a public forum on the civil rights implications of eminent domain. It will be at the famous 16th Street Baptist Church in Birmingham. Among those who will appear are minority property owners who will allege eminent domain abuse, government officials, and legal experts. Some of those who will appear lost their land to make way for a Wal-Mart.
The meeting will be begin at 9:00 a.m. on April 29 and there will be an opportunity for members of the audience to speak after 4:15. I’ll be chairing the meeting.
