North Carolina’s Long Civil Rights Movement

American Legion 300 N McLewean St Kinston N.C. 28501
Farmville Public Library is pleased to host Kenneth Zogry, PhD., on Monday, February 15 at 6:30 pm.  Dr. Zogry will present a program on North Carolina's civil rights movement.
Though the Civil Rights Movement is often framed by events of the 1950s and 1960s, the struggle for political and social rights for African Americans actually stretches back nearly 150 years. North Carolinians were involved in the movement at the local, state, and national level from the end of the Civil War into the 1970s. This illustrated lecture, including many rarely seen historical images, gives an overview of civil rights efforts during Reconstruction, the White Supremacy campaign of the 1890s, African American political organization in the 1910s and labor movements of the 1930s, as well as the better-known sit-ins, protests, and struggles to integrate the state’s public schools from the 1950s into the 1970s. Individuals important to the movement will be introduced, including Rep. George White, Dr. Manassa T. Pope, Pauli Murray, Ella Baker, and Julius Chambers. Events discussed include the 1898 Wilmington Riot, the Raleigh mayoral race of 1919, union organizing in Winston-Salem in the 1930s, efforts to enforce the Supreme Court decisions of 1954 and 1971 desegregating public schools, the 1960 sit-ins in Greensboro and the formation of the Student Nonviolent Coordinating Committee (SNCC) in Raleigh, among others.
Dr. Kenneth Zogry is both an academic and a public historian.  He holds a B.A. in Political Science from North Carolina State University, and an M.A. and Ph.D. in American History from UNC-Chapel Hill. Dr. Zogry has authored several academic articles and books, and has taught at UNC Chapel Hill, North Carolina State University, William Peace University, and Guilford College.

This project is made possible by a grant from the North Carolina Humanities Council, a statewide nonprofit and affiliate of the National Endowment for the Humanities.
