 IS THE SUBJECT OF A FORUM SCHEDULED FOR WEDNESDAY, MAY 13
 On Wednesday, May 13, beginning with an 8:30 a.m. breakfast in the Omni Hotel grand ballroom, Wayne County Commissioner Ricardo Solomon and First Independence National Bank President Don Davis will host a ministerial forum on using the collective wealth and influence of black churches to revitalize Detroit neighborhoods.
 The forum is titled "Economic Empowerment Through The African- American Church: A Call For Action." It is sponsored by the Detroit/Wayne County Coalition on Community Investment and First Independence National Bank, which Solomon and Davis represent.
 More than 500 black ministers have been invited to the forum that will stress pooling of church resources, engaging in joint ventures, and establishing community development corporations for rehabilitating residential and commercial property, providing venture capital for black businesses, and training people in the skilled trades.
 Panel discussions will begin at 10:15 a.m. and include ministers, government agencies and black developers currently involved in economic development projects, among them Don Barden and Joel Ferguson.
 A news conference will be held at 11:30 a.m.
