Separate and Unequal

October 10, 2019 at 7:30pm

K.R. Williams Auditorium, Winston-Salem State University

A coalition of community partners, including Action4Equity, is hosting an evening with Nikole Hannah-Jones, nationally recognized author and recipient of a MacArthur Genius grant. Ms. Hannah-Jones covers racial injustice for The New York Times Magazine and has spent years chronicling the way official policy has created — and maintains — racial segregation in housing and schools. Her deeply personal reports on the black experience in America offer a compelling case for greater equity. Join us for this transformative event.
