Kenneth Janken -'The Wilmington Ten'
It's an important part of NC history, one that happened in many of our lifetimes. Join us on Thursday, January 21, at 7 pm when UNC prof of African American & Diaspora Studies Kenneth Janken shares The Wilmington Ten: Violence, Injustice, and the Rise of Black Politics in the 1970s. Wilmington thoroughly examines the 1971 events in Wilmington, NC and the subsequent movement for justice that strongly influenced the wider African American freedom struggle. “A passionate, intensely engaging portrait of the group's initial mission, as well as the terrible personal lifelong toll the struggle took.” - Kirkus Reviews
