PASTOR IVERSON JACKSON IS MAIN SPEAKER
The Garland County TEA Party on Monday, June 21, will host Pastor Iverson Jackson for a discussion of the Critical race theory.
The event will be held at 6:30 p.m. at the The Legendary Vapors, 315 Park Ave. in Hot Springs. The public is invited to attend and the event is free.
The event is a part of the Garland County TEA Party’s ongoing program to provide information about ongoing local, state and national issues. The TEA Party meets every Wednesday at noon at the Hibachi Grill. The weekly meetings are free and the public may attend.
U.S. Senator Tom Cotton has criticized the teaching of the Critical race theory as being anti-American and racist and has introduced legislation banning the teaching of the theory at any institution related to the Armed Forces. Members of the House have introduced a bill to ban the teaching of the contested theory because it is divisive ideology.
Jackson, who on June 12 received the Frederick Douglass award from the African American Coalition of Arkansas, will discuss the theory and accept some questions from the public.
