YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio -

Promoting strength in numbers, the YWCA held its second annual Stand Against Racism event.

The event was held Friday morning at Youngstown State University’s Kilcawley Center.

The program featured a screening of the movie “An Ordinary Hero: The True Story of Joan Trumpauer Mulholland."  Mulholland was also in attendance discussing her fight against racism during the 1960s.

"I was just an ordinary student like a lot of the folks here today and I think I made a difference in our country.  Maybe they can get inspiration. You don't have to be a hero to do it.  Like Dr. King, you can do it yourself," Mulholland said.

The program also featured a poster contest on celebrating diversity for children in grades kindergarten through twelfth..
