The meeting to discuss race relations has been changed to the Wise Street Park in Newberry and is scheduled for 6:30 p.m.
The meeting was scheduled to be held at Fellowship Baptist Church but Panther leaders say that “pressure from authorities” is the reason for the change.
Church leaders had said they were not contacted about the meeting.
The groups also rescheduled a march from Saturday until July 17.
The groups did not have a City of Newberry permit to hold the march but say they do not need a permit to march.
According to Police Chief Jackie Swindler, a permit is needed for anyone to take to the streets.
The protest is in response to the shooting death and dragging of Anthony Hill, 30, of Winnsboro.
Hill worked at Louis Rich with Gregory Collins, 19, of Highway 34, and had spent much of June 1 with him.
Collins reportedly shot Hill in the head, tied Hill’s dead body to the back of his pickup truck and dragged him more than 10 miles until the rope broke.
Hill’s body was found just before dawn near Pomaria Garmany Elementary School.
Collins was arrested after a standoff and is being held at the Newberry Detention Center without bond.
An investigation into the case is continuing and federal officials are working to determine if the crime is one of hate, but the two men were reportedly friends.
