An event supported by UA on Nov. 9: at 4:00, a talk titled “Through Survivors Eyes” about a violent 1979 attack by white supremacists. "Through Survivors’ Eyes: Charlottesville, Greensboro and the Fight to Resist White Supremacy" will be in the Sugar Maple Ballroom in the Davis Center. The talk features two survivors of a 1979 white supremacist attack, Sally Bermanzohn, Ph.D. & Paul Bermanzohn, M.D. In the 1979 Greensboro Massacre members of the KKK and Neo-Nazis opened fire on demonstrators who were beginning a march against the KKK, killing five and wounding nine. This talk will discuss how these events fit into the historical context of white supremacy, what we can do as a community to combat it, and move toward a more just society.
The United Academics Executive Council also supports the Will Miller Social Lecture series lecture by Steven Salaita, November 9, 7-9 pm, Sugar Maple Ballroom. The talk is titled "Palestine: Long Road to Freedom.”
