Forsyth reports on racial progress

A biracial committee formed to deal with racial turmoil in Forsyth County, Ga., issued its first report Tuesday and cited progress on several fronts. The report, released through Gov. Joe Frank Harris's office, said ministers in the county, which was the scene of an attack on civil rights marchers earlier this year, have taken steps to condemn extremist views.

In addition, real estate agents and businessmen are working toward fair housing guidelines for the county, which has no black residents, and a local club has helped raise money to feed the hungry in Atlanta, the report said. One committee member said the community activity was ``creating some positive momentum in the county and thereby facilitating the biracial committee's progress.''
