The African American Student Experience at UNCW: Desegregation, the First Decade

In recognition of Black History Month, the Center for Southeast North Carolina Archives and History cordially invites you to attend a special evening event on Tuesday, February 27, at 6:30 p.m., "The African American Student Experience at UNCW:  Desegregation, the First Decade."  The program will feature a panel of some of Wilmington College/UNCW's first African American alumni, including Veronica McLaurin-Brown, Samuel Grady, Patricia Waddell, and Liz Harvin Johnson.  Our panelists will discuss both the challenges and opportunities presented by the racial integration of UNCW, while focusing on their own personal experiences and viewpoints, which remain as relevant and meaningful today as they were during their student years.  The program will be held in the Randall Library auditorium (room 2047) and light refreshments will be served. We hope that you will join us for this important event.

UNCW encourages persons with disabilities to participate in its programs and activities. If you anticipate needing any type of accommodation or have questions about the physical access provided, please contact Samantha Crisp (910-962-7810, crisps@uncw.edu) in advance of this event.
