Forum discussing black men and the media held at Armstrong

SAVANNAH, GA (WTOC) -

Students and faculty gathered at Armstrong State University for a forum discussing media perception related to the fatal shooting of Michael Brown in Ferguson.

The group talked about the issues facing black men in our society as well as solutions. The concluded solution: change from within.

"Changing the way we approach ourselves and how we view ourselves in society. I think that self-reflection and the ability to value ourselves more than we currently do. I think once we get to that point as a black people in America: that we are are valuable and we can contribute and that we can ascend to the highest ranks of our society," said moderator, Chris Godfrey.
