Community Reparations Summit: Screening of “Black in Asheville”
October 2 @ 5:00 pm
UNC Asheville will host a screening of the documentary, “Black in Asheville,” with filmmaker Todd Gragg, at 5 p.m. on Monday, October 2, in the Mullen & James Humanities Hall.
“Black In Asheville” brings together Asheville residents and historians to recount Asheville’s Black history, beginning with the Antebellum Period and exploring Reconstruction, Jim Crow and Black Code Laws, as well as impact of churches and schools on the progression of Black life. The film also examines life in Asheville for Black residents today, and seeks to define how the community can move forward.
Locally Black-owned food trucks will be available to attendees from 5-6:15 pm.
This film screening is part of the Community Reparations Summit.
