The first of four Human Relations werlcshops met to discuss problems arising from de facto segregation in the Englewood elementary scirools and to touch upon possiSle-s dlltions . Some r5o peopre.r se ated around 16 ztables attend.eci this session. The purpose

of

set fcrth by the organizing

to handlo these rliscussions in such a manner thaf all tha participants might have an opportunlty to cxpress their opinions and become aware of the opinions of others on both the problenrs and t,he solutions; to oncourago the city falhers to move forward in Nhe area of human relations by demonstrating that a large cross-section of cillzens is aware of the situatiOn and thc need for inproveftDt.rt

In connentj.ng on the purposo as stated by the organi.zing conmittee, Rev. Brubaker cautioned that if tho discussions at the vsrious tablos were morery a reitaration of a vieuppint of like rninds, tho workshops would havo faiLed in thelr purpos6. He notod tho tendency for different groups to gravitate toward thernsolves j-n their lntelests and ldeas, but felt therro was not enough cornrrrunita tion betueen groups and observedl rrOther groups need not <lnly to speitj tire y noed to listenrrr rt, ls not onry nccessary to expross our ofln id6as to othersl tut arsn to be aware of the oplnions of others
Rev. Bruhaker then went on to fill in bhe background. There is do facto segregation in tho Llncoln School, and Liberty school is fifty to sixTl !6iGont Negro. Both tho Junior High School and tho High School are intcgrated, t,ut thcrs ar problems for both Nogro and whito because neither has had tho opportunit$ io participate in integrated, problems before.
