History Repeats Itself: Ahmaud Arbery & Racism in 2020
May 21, 2020 @ 4:00 pm – 5:30 pm
On February 23, Ahmaud Arbery, a 25-year-old black man, was murdered by two white men while jogging in Brunswick, Georgia. It took the surfacing of a video three months later, and outcries from people nationwide, for the aggressors to be arrested. Join Carolina Public Humanities and Carolina K-12 on Thursday, May 21 for a virtual program that explores the ongoing violence against black communities and the connections between history and current events from the perspectives of black voices in historical scholarship, education, the arts, racial equity training, and more. This free program, co-sponsored by the Orange County Community Remembrance Coalition, will provide a space to also explore actions concerned community members can take to advocate for justice and equality in 2020 and beyond.
