501 LIFE has published its July edition, which features special coverage of the recent Conway United for Equality march and rally.

Nearly 500 people participated June 7 in the event, with participants gathering at Rogers Plaza on Oak Street in Downtown Conway in 90-plus degree heat and marching to Simon Park.

“In addition to our coverage of the march and rally, we have photos from peaceful protests in Conway and Searcy, urging an end to racism in our country,” said 501 LIFE Editor Sonja J. Keith. “At the rally, Conway Mayor Bart Castleberry made the point that “there’s no place for racism anywhere’ and we couldn’t agree more.

“We applaud the efforts that are being undertaken in our area to address racism and bring about unity and understanding.”

Other features from this month’s edition include:
