Valley Perspective

Race Relations in Antelope Valley

March 12, 2000

Your Feb. 22 article "The Antelope Valley's Bad Rap Over Race" contains a glaring omission that would have provided a fuller picture of the race relations in the Antelope Valley.

While the article [features] a photo of the Rev. Henry Hearns, it fails to mention that he is a long-term Antelope Valley resident and past mayor and vice-mayor of Lancaster. He is an integral member of the community and has a history of working to resolve all community issues, including hate crime.

By failing to fully elaborate on his role in the community, it appears that his interactions in Littlerock are of little significance. On the contrary, Hearns has consistently reached out to all members of the community, and in his leadership has bridged many gaps.
