There will be a national commemoration of the 40th Anniversary of the Greensboro Massacre in Greensboro, North Carolina November 1-3, 2019. Old friends from across the country will converge for a weekend of events that will include a graveside ceremony, a reading of the award-winning playwright Emily Mann’s “Greensboro: A Requiem,” a legal panel on current civil rights issues in the South, and a service at the Beloved Community Center,led by Reverend Nelson and Joyce Johnson. A Los Angeles delegation will be traveling to take part in the national commemoration.
On Sunday, November 17, there will be a Los Angeles commemoration at 12 noon at the UCLA Labor Center, 675 S Park View St, Los Angeles, CA 90057. A number of guests from out-of-town are expected. More details to follow in the near future.
The current rise of white nationalism, xenophobia, attacks on women’s rights, and corporate tyranny call on us to reflect on the lessons of November 3rd and our continuing fight for economic, racial and social justice. I hope you can join us.
