A Conversation About Racial Inequality at the Nation’s Oldest Public University

October 16 @ 11:00 am - 12:30 pm

 

The NC Poor People’s Campaign and the YMI Cultural Center present a conversation with civil rights attorney and UNC law professor Geeta N. Kapur, author of the new book, “To Drink from the Well: The Struggle for Racial Equality at the Nation’s Oldest Public University,” at 11 am, October 16, at the YMI Cultural Center, at 20-44 Eagle St, in Asheville.

The book explores the history of UNC by exposing the plain and uncomfortable truth behind the storied brick walkways, “historic” statuary, and picturesque covered well, the icon of the campus.

The event will be livestreamed on the NC Poor People’s Campaign Facebook page.

In-person attendance is limited to 75 people. You must show proof of vaccination to enter and remain masked throughout. Register here.
