Wilmington on Fire

January 16, 2020 @ 6:00 pm - 8:30 pm

Free

In collaboration with the Orange County Community Remembrance Coalition and the Chapel Hill Public Library

Thursday, January 16, 6:00–8:30 pm | Chapel Hill Public Library

An insurrection led by white supremacists in Wilmington overthrew the city’s elected interracial government in 1898 and led to the systematic exclusion of all black North Carolinians from the state’s political life during the early 20th century. Join us for the screening of a documentary film about these events, followed by a panel discussion with the director Christopher Everett and historical experts.

This event is free and open to the public.
