National Group Travels to Black Belt
By Alabama Public Radio
White Hall, AL – The National Center for Neighborhood Enterprises sent a group to Alabama's Black Belt region Monday to take a look at its living conditions. The Washington, D-C based group brought two televangelists to Lowndes County to talk to local residents. The visitors then toured area neighborhoods for a personal look at how some Black Belt residents live. The National Center for Neighborhood Enterprises hopes the ministers will return home and use their television ministries to help. Center president Robert Woodson says his group also is trying to get a two million-dollar grant for an industrial park in Fort Deposit.
