The North Carolina Commission on Racial and Ethnic Disparities in the Criminal Justice System will host a symposium next month focusing on the harms posed by confederate monuments.
The all-day event will be held at Shaw University on April 13 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Click here to register.
“Confederate monuments are not simply relics to the past, slightly embarrassing for those of us who understand their intention. Their presence continues to cause mental anguish, create fear, and perpetuate racial injustice. All of us must own this truth and work for restitution by removing these monuments,” Rev. Dr. Jennifer Copeland, executive director North Carolina Council of Churches and a member of the Symposium Planning Committee, said in a statement.
