PENDER DEMOCRATS MEET IN August
Contact: Debbi Fintak or call 910-238-3996
BURGAW – Pender County Democrats will host a viewing of WILMINGTON FIRE movie, Tuesday night at 6:30 PM, August 29 at Burgaw Library , 103 S Cowan Street, Burgaw. This will be the group's monthly meeting but is also open and free to the public. A discussion will follow the documentary. Meeting hosted by Vice chair Sheree Shepard.
WILMINGTON ON FIRE is a feature-length documentary that will give a historical and present day look at the Wilmington Massacre of 1898. The Wilmington Massacre of 1898 was a bloody attack on the African-American community by a heavily armed white mob with the support of the North Carolina Democratic Party on November 10, 1898 in the port city of Wilmington, North Carolina. It is considered one of the only successful examples of a violent overthrow of an existing government (coup d'etat) and left countless numbers of African-American citizens dead and exiled from the city. This event was the spring board for the white supremacy movement and Jim Crow Segregation throughout the state of North Carolina, and the American South. This incident is barely mentioned and has been omitted from most history books. It was not until 2006, after the North Carolina General Assembly published a report on it, that the tragedy became known to the public. The film features interviews from historians, authors, activists and descendants of the victims of the Wilmington Massacre of 1898. Christopher Everett is director.
The film features Dr. Umar Johnson, Larry Reni Thomas, Dr. Lewin Manly, Faye Chaplin, Inez Eason, William Darity Jr., LeRae Umfleet, Kent Chatfield, Queen Quet, Sonya Patrick, and Daawud Muhammad.
