Ida B. Wells Symposia | #BlackOutLoud Documentary Viewing & Discussion
October 29, 2020 @ 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm
Viewing of the #BlackOutLoudUNC documentary, plus Q&A with Yet & Still artists, producers, and students, De’Ivyion Drew, Cortland Gilliam, and Jerry Wilson. Watch the clips with us and join the conversation with artists, moderated by Renee Price.
This documentary view and discussion with producers and artists concludes our series of six October 2020 virtual events honoring pioneering African American Journalist Ida B. Wells.
To celebrate the life and work of Black journalist, advocate and educator Ida B. Wells, the Center for the Study of the American South joins the Orange County Community Remembrance Coalition and the Chapel Hill-Carborro NAACP in hosting six virtual events throughout the month of October 2020. Wells-Barnett used the power of words to stop racial violence. She risked her life to shine “the light of truth” on lynching at its height in the U.S. between the 1890s and 1930s.
Our symposia collection of panel discussions, lectures, educator workshops, and performances encourages the continued work of investigative journalism and increasing and retaining reporters and editors of color.
