CoastLine: David Zucchino, Author of Wilmington's Lie (WHQR)
How does this bloody coup, which took place more than a century ago, impact Wilmington, the Cape Fear region, North Carolina – and even other parts of the American South today? Is white supremacy still alive and well in the Port City? David Zucchino is a contributing writer for The New York Times. He won a Pulitzer Prize for his reporting on apartheid in South Africa, and he’s written three books: Thunder Run, The Myth of the Welfare Queen – and most recently, Wilmington’s Lie, The Murderous Coup of 1898 and The Rise Of White Supremacy. Coastline is a call-in variety news hour by WHQR. Every week, we’ll look into issues that matter in the Cape Fear Region. Host Rachel Lewis Hilburn will interview expert guests and invite you to join the conversation.
