#3) Wilmington Library To Host Discussion On Anti-Racism Documentary

Watch the documentary, I am Not Your Negro,  on Kanopy. It’s a radical narration of race in America, using Baldwin’s original words and flood of rich archival material that connects the past of the Civil Rights movement to the present of #BlackLivesMatter.

Then, join Technology Librarian, Brad McKenna, to share your thoughts about it at 1pm.

This is an online event via Zoom. An invite will be sent at least thirty minutes prior to the start of the program to the email given at  registration. Please be sure to check your clutter/junk/spam boxes if the invite does not appear in your inbox.
