ANDERSON, Ind. —
"We've seen some good work done at the high school, but not elsewhere," Harris said. "Our schools don't care enough about black children, and that needs to be addressed."
Madison County Council President John Bostic, who was also in attendance, said the best way to improve economic hardships in the city and county is to spend money locally. He endorsed campaigns that would reward local entrepreneurship and keep money in the county.
William Watson, owner of The Pittt restaurant, said he encouraged people with business ideas to approach the city's economic development department, which has been helpful in getting businesses off the ground.
The group tentatively agreed to have another meeting but did not set a date.
