In the 100 days since George Floyd’s murder in Minneapolis, protests and calls for systemic change have roiled American communities and shifted the national conversation in fundamental ways.
How have the last 100 days impacted Winston-Salem, Greensboro, and the greater Triad region? How have local activists and organizers used this moment to generate action and policy, and what have been the disappointments or lessons-learned along the way? What’s next for Black Lives Matter and the larger movement for racial justice?
MUSE Winston-Salem and Triad City Beat invite you to this Facebook Live event on Thursday, Sept. 3 at 7 p.m. for a panel discussion featuring Black activists and leaders from both cities, including:
- Miranda Jones, teacher, activist and founding member of Hate Out of Winston
- Dr. Brittany Battle, an organizer with Occupy Winston Salem and the Triad Abolition Project and Assistant Professor in the Wake Forest University Sociology Department
- Greensboro-based activist Anthony Morgan, aka Free Dope Major, who along with his crew known as ‘The 3’ has staged multiple counter-racism protests in recent weeks
- Greensboro’s April Parker, artist and community organizer
Moderated by Triad City Beat Associate Editor Sayaka Matsuoka, we will be livestreaming this event on both the TCB and MUSE WS Facebook pages.
