BPAC and SCC joins east Carolina university
The Long Civil Rights Movement
5:00 - 6:30 PM
From Emmett Till To Black Lives Matter
Despite the common perception that the Civil Rights Movement occurred in the 1950s-1960s, the fight for equity and justice started from the early days of America’s founding and continues today. Scholar and performer Dr. Sonny Kelly takes viewers on a tour across this nation’s history, from Crispus Attucks to Ahmaud Arbery, and considers how black lives have always mattered – but in different ways and for different reasons.
This program interweaves excerpts from THE TALK and HAUNTED, dramas that explore this topic. Dr. Kelly chronicles the long and ongoing struggle for civil rights, as a nation reframes and reclaims our shared history in order to pave a more equitable and inclusive future.
This program is sponsored by East Carolina University's Office of Global Affairs, the Ledonia Wright Cultural Center, UNC-Chapel Hill's Carolina Public Humanities and Sandhills Community College.
