Changes, Challenges & Crisis

Remembering the Civil Rights Era in the Diocese of North Carolina, 1963-1973. You are invited to St. Philip’s Episcopal Church (403 E. Main, Durham) Saturday, June 3, 10:00 a.m. to  3:00 p.m. for a retrospective on this important decade. Go behind the headlines of the General Convention Special Program, Malcolm X Liberation University, and the Black Panther Party’s Free Ambulance Service. Consider the legacy of this era in our individual and corporate lives, and in our ongoing efforts toward racial reconciliation. Two groups of panelists, along with audience participants, will offer eye-witness accounts and reflections. An optional tour of the Pauli Murray Family Home, led by Barbara Lau, Director of the Pauli Murray Project, will follow the program. This home was recently designated National Historic Landmark and is the future home of The Pauli Murray Center for History and Social Justice. A registration fee of $15 includes lunch. To register check the diocesan website under “News & Events/Upcoming Events” or call Lynn Hoke at 919-602-4305.
