Speaking out: Sharing Stories of Pain, Frustration, and Hope

A panel put together by Bedford Embraces Diversity (BED) provided a platform for the first of the essential ongoing conversations which must take place for both the country and Bedford to move forward together. Mike Rosenberg of BED hosted the event, titled “Speaking Out: Sharing Stories of Pain, Frustration, and Hope.”

The panelists, all with strong connections to Bedford, shared their experiences dealing with race in America, and more specifically in Bedford. Many grew up in Bedford, attended Bedford Schools, or are current residents.
