Screening of the film February One

February 18 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

Screening of the award-winning film, February One, followed by a panel discussion on “Student Activism, Then and Now”.

Based largely on first-hand accounts and rare archival footage, February One documents one volatile winter in Greensboro that not only challenged public accommodation customs and laws in North Carolina but served as a blueprint for the wave of non-violent civil rights protests that swept across the South and the nation throughout the 1960s.

This event is co-sponsored by the Chapel Hill/Carrboro NAACP, The Sonja Haynes Stone Center, Carolina Black Caucus, Democratic Women Of Orange County, and Hillsborough Progressives Take Action.
