      LECTURE: “From the Wilmington 10 to Pitt County’s Season of Discontent: A Police Shooting, School Repression, and the Limits of Black Protest.” by Dr. Kenneth Janken

      Join us on Thursday, October 3 as Dr. Kenneth Janken, professor of African American and Diaspora studies at the University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill, examines the 1971 events in Pitt County. Shortly after the events leading to the Wilmington 10 erupted, Pitt County experienced its own convulsions ignited by a police shooting and conflict over the school desegregation. Dr. Janken will speak about the events in Pitt County in the summer and fall of 1971 and explores why they disappeared from the public conversation.

      The lecture begins at 6:30 pm. This lecture is FREE and open to the public. Donations are greatly appreciated. For more information about the lecture, contact Carolyn Gonzalez at 910-251-3700 x306 or cgonzalez@bellamymansion.org.
