A $35,000 question for Decatur's City Commission: Will they ever get around to apologizing to the city's African American residents for omitting them and their heritage resources, including the former Beacon & Trinity schools (on tonight's agenda), from the 2009 "comprehensive" historic resources survey? Decatur's a city with a rich African American history, yet blacks are not mentioned a single time in the report the city paid consultants $35 thousand to research and write: http://wp.me/p1bnGQ-1zT
