The first of several race relations seminars began Thursday night.

District Attorney Ben David started Wilmington in Black and White. This is its second year, and the program will focus on several topics over the course of eight weeks, but its inaugural session last night was about the power of southern culture. The class explores the future and history of race relations in Wilmington.

“For years we have not understood that history and it plays out every day in our interactions because we don’t know how things got this way so this is insight in to the past and a window in to the future for race relations in the area,” described organizer Kimberly McLaughlin.

There is still availability if you are interested in signing up. You can find more information at www.wilmingtoninblackandwhite.org.

ZEBULON, N.C. — Three people have been arrested and police are searching for a driver after a North Carolina police officer was dragged by a truck that then ran over him.

Police told WRAL-TV that the Zebulon police officer may have suffered a broken leg.

Police say the officer responded about 2 a.m. Friday to a call about people stealing propane tanks at a gas station. When police saw the truck at another gas station, an officer in training went to the passenger’s side and stood in the truck doorway.

Police say the officer was trapped when the driver put the truck in reverse, and the passenger tried to shut the door. The officer was dragged about 15 to 20 feet.

Police Chief Tim Hayworth says when the officer got free, the vehicle ran over him.
