CHARLESTON, W.Va. (AP) - A two-day conference on the history of race relations and racial inequality in West Virginia is set for next week in Charleston.

The Summit on Race Matters in Appalachia begins Monday evening at the Culture Center with a screening of the film “Cracking the Codes: Social Determinants of Racial Inequality.” That will be followed by workshop discussions and keynote speakers the next day at the Four Points Sheraton.

Tara Martinez, executive director of the WV Women’s Commission, says the program will allow attendees to share their own experiences and allow participants to “see race through a new lens of racial understanding.”
