There is still work to be done to end racism and the other ism’s.

That was the consensus of a group of prominent men of color who came together at Milton High School Feb. 11 to talk about civil rights.

Former Sen. Mo Cowin, UMASS-Boston Chancellor Keith Motley and Kenneth Guscott, former head of both the Boston branch of the NAACP and Urban League of Eastern Massachusetts answered the questions of Flash Wiley, an attorney and chairman of the board of the Dimock Center.

They spoke of racial injustice and the way to create change.

More of this story will appear in the e-edition and print issue of Feb. 19.
