BOSTON (AP) - Boston Mayor Martin Walsh has hosted a public discussion about racism in Boston.

Walsh and members of his administration discussed plans for a yearlong project aimed at bringing small, facilitated conversations about racism, healing and policy work out into all the neighborhoods of the city.

The discussion was held Saturday morning at Cutler Majestic Theatre.

New England Cable News reports that more than 600 people attended, and the mayor told the audience that it’s time to address the racial tension that still exists in Boston.

The event was supported by partners, including 100 Resilient Cities, the Greater Boston Chamber of Commerce and Emerson College.
