Legislators won’t return to Raleigh until May 2018; but some have already threatened to gerrymander our state courts, take control of the N.C. Supreme Court, and even rewrite our constitution to enshrine limits to voting access. And that’s only the beginning.

It’s not too early to fight back. Sponsored by Democracy NC, NAACP of North Carolina, North Carolina Voters for Clean Elections (NCVCE), and Progress NC, this 90-minute event will provide a look at these and other important issues impacting voters and how you can fight back against attacks on our democracy in 2018.

Meetings to discuss Confederate monument – Rocky Mount Telegram

The Rocky Mount Human Relations Commission is set to host a series of meetings meant to improve race relations in the community, including discussions about the Confederate monument on Falls Road.

The series kicks off Wednesday with a presentation on the Wilmington race riots and reconciliation.

Dr. Bertha Boykin Todd, a retired educator, community advocate and one of the leads in the reconciliation process regarding the Wilmington race riots of 1898, will provide information beginning at 4 p.m. in the Rocky Mount City Council Chambers.

“I will give you a history of Wilmington to let you know the thinking and the environment, as well as the causes of the thinking before the event occurred,” Todd said. “This is no quick fix. It’s something individuals will have to go through and face and develop a process that will be adequate and effective for that area.” (Read more)
