LET’S TALK | BRIDGING THE DIVIDE

LMPD Traffic Stops Panel Discussion

FEATURING: Steve Conrad, LMPD Chief; Sadiqa Reynolds, LUL President; David James, Metro Council President

TUESDAY JUNE 4TH 2019. 5 – 7 PM
First Floor Gallery Access: 5-6 pm / DISCUSSION Moderated by Rachel Platt: 6-7 pm

Recent traffic stops have come under increased scrutiny after claims that the practice has lead to unequal treatment for minorities. Most recently an 18-year old stopped for making a wide turn was removed from his vehicle, frisked and, handcuffed for a period of time – the video of this traffic stop has been circulated widely. The new policies just announced by LMPD may help move us forward as a community feeling there is one Louisville, and not two.

Panelists include LMPD Police Chief Steve Conrad, Urban League President Sadiqa Reynolds, and Metro Council President David James.

Invited Guests: Tae-Ahn Lea and his mother, Tija Jackson

GEORGE “G.G.” JOHNSON
George Johnson was the first and only African-American head golf pro in Kentucky. He began to learn the game at the age of 15 when he caddied at a segregated country club in Georgia. He turned pro in 1964 and qualified for the US Open in 1965. He received his tour card after successfully completing the PGA qualifying program (or graduating “Q” school) in 1968 and began playing in tournaments with the likes of Jack Nicklaus, Miller Barber and Tom Kite. In 1971 he won the Azalea Open and became the fourth African-American to ever win a PGA tournament. George spent a total of 10 years on the PGA Tour and three on the Senior Tour and remained a Lifetime Member of the PGA. In 1997, George became the head golf pro at Bobby Nichols Golf Course here in Louisville Metro. Unfortunately, George passed away in March of 2014, but his legacy and passion for the game still live on through those he taught and the lives he has touched.
