Join us, Monday, July 15, for a bus trip to the Levine Museum of the New South. As part of our Conversations that Matter, we will be visiting the new featured exhibit, The Legacy of Lynching: Confronting Racial Terror in America.
The Legacy of Lynching: Confronting Racial Terror in America presents the Equal Justice Initiative’s groundbreaking research into the history of lynching, and situates Mecklenburg County’s two recorded lynchings within this context.
The exhibition features powerful oral testimonies from descendants of lynching victims, and seeks to spark an honest conversation about the legacy of racial injustice from slavery to present day mass incarceration.
You will also have the opportunity to check out other exhibits. Learn more here.
Admission into the museum is $10 adults, $8 seniors- to be paid at the door. $5 cash will be collected for the bus on the day of the trip. Cost of lunch not included.
Meet at the bus in the gravel parking lot beside the CDC at 8:30 am on Monday, July 15.
Register by July 11. If you have any questions, please contact Pat Roos.
