Last week the Bethel AME church in Bloomington hosted a forum on the relationship between police and the rest of the Bloomington community. In the lead up to that event WFHB’s African American public affairs program, Bring it On, hosted a conversation with the church’s pastor, Reverend Dennis Laffoon.
