NAACP To Hold Second Screening Of “Wilmington On Fire” Documentary

After many requests, the Goldsboro-Wayne branch NAACP is hosting another showing of Wilmington On Fire, a heavy and enlightening documentary on the Wilmington Massacre of 1898 – the springboard for the White Supremacy movement and Jim Crow segregation throughout North Carolina and the American South. The showing is this Friday, July 30, from 2 – 5 PM at the Wayne County Public Library, 1001 E. Ash Street, Goldsboro.

The Goldsboro-Wayne NAACP entitled the event, What’s In A Name: History of Charles B. Aycock’s Involvement in Black Voter Suppression.

The documentary features Sean Palmer, the Director of University North Carolina Wilmington’s Upperman African American Cultural Center, and local activists Reverend John J. Kirkpatrick IV & Dominique Ashely.
