Meet & Greet at 3:30 pm
Join us for a meet & greet with Kieran Haile, a direct descendant of Alexander Manly. Alexander Manly was the editor of The Daily Record, Wilmington’s African American newspaper. Mr. Manly was run out of town after his printing press was burned during the white supremacy campaign of 1898.
Film Screening at 4:30 pm
Following the meet & greet, join us for a screening of “The Red Cape”, a narrative exploration of the 1898 Wilmington Race Riot – the only proven violent overthrow of a government in U.S. history. We hope this film inspires compassion and illuminates a crucial yet forgotten piece of our Civil Rights history.
