FBI Director James B. Comey plans to speak during the annual conference on civil rights and law enforcement in Birmingham.

The Gasden Times reports that Comey will be a special guest speaker during the final day of the conference, which is sponsored by the FBI Birmingham Division and the Birmingham Civil Rights Institute.

“Race and Law Enforcement: It’s More Than Just Black And White” is a two-day conference beginning on Tuesday. Comey will speak Wednesday at the historic 16th Street Baptist Church.

“The response to the conference has been overwhelming,” Priscilla Hancock Cooper, BCRI Vice President of Institutional Programs, said. “In fact, the May 24th training session has been completely sold out. However, there is still plenty of space available for people to register for the May 25th program that features FBI Director James Comey.”

The director’s speech is open to the public.

“The FBI is proud to once again partner with the Birmingham Civil Rights Institute for a conference on law enforcement and civil rights,” Roger Stanton, Special Agent in Charge of the Birmingham FBI office said. “Communicating, with a special emphasis on listening, is critical in the ongoing discussion regarding race and criminal justice in America. This conference offers an important avenue towards bringing together law enforcement and the diverse communities we serve and protect.”
