 PANEL TO EXAMINE FUTURE OF DETROIT IN LIGHT OF L.A. UNREST
 DETROIT, May 7 /PRNewswire/ -- "What Direction Detroit?" is the title and subject of an open panel discussion planned for Saturday, May 9, from 10:30 a.m. until noon at Marygrove College's Madame Cadillac Hall. The program, a response to the California jury verdict and subsequent destruction, is sponsored by New Detroit, Inc. and Marygrove.
 According to Paul Hubbard, president of New Detroit, Inc., the program is offered as a forum to express fears and frustrations as well as the opportunity to build bridges among groups.
 "Just as people seek to talk with and comfort one another after the death of a loved one, so too is it of value to talk through what happened in California."
 Vivian Buffington, director of race relations for New Detroit, said, "We hope the outcome will be several specific and concrete steps that can be taken by individuals to improve the future prospects for Detroit's residents."
 Buffington said that the response from the community has been very encouraging and she expects a sizable turnout on Saturday.
 Wayne County Commissioner Bernard Parker will moderate a panel consisting of: NDI's Hubbard; N. Charles Anderson, president, Detroit Urban League; Robert Arcand, executive director, Greater Detroit Interfaith Roundtable; Gus Gaynet, U.S. Justice Department, community relations; Ron Hall, assistant vice president and director of minority economic development, New Detroit; Gail Parrish, executive director, Race Relations Council of Metropolitan Detroit; and John Shay, president of Marygrove College.
 Among the co-sponsoring organizations are: ACCESS; the Archdiocese of Detroit; the Detroit Pistons' Foundation; the Race Relations Council of Metropolitan Detroit; Operation Get Down; Detroit Interfaith Roundtable-NCCJ; Episcopal Diocese of Detroit; Associated Food Dealers; American-Arab Anti-Discrimination Committee; Detroit Urban League; Diversified Temporary Services, Inc.; Latino Family Services; and NAACP Detroit.
