As part of activities honoring the legacy of Martin Luther King Jr., the UNC Hussman School of Journalism and Media will host a conversation with Franklin McCain Jr. — son of civil rights activist Franklin McCain, part of the “Greensboro Four” who staged the sit-in at a Woolworth store in Greensboro, North Carolina, on Feb. 1, 1960. UNC Hussman Adjunct Professor Carl Kenney, the founder of Liberation Station North Carolina and publisher of the online independent newspaper Durham Rev-elution, will moderate the conversation.
The conversation with McCain will take place on Tuesday, January 17, from 6 to 7:15 p.m. in the Freedom Forum Conference Center, located on Carroll Hall’s third floor. Advance registrations are strongly encouraged.
Refreshments will be available at 5:30 p.m. prior to the event’s start.
The conversation is part of UNC Hussman School of Journalism and Media’s MLK Day of Action.
Please also join us earlier in the day at 12:10 p.m. in front of Carroll Hall for a student-led walk-out/sit-out event in which students will give remarks and read from King’s “I Have a Dream” speech.
