Join us to watch “Racist Roots,” a powerful 30-minute film that demonstrates the deep entanglement with white supremacy and racial terror lynching to today’s death penalty in North Carolina. After the film, Noel Nickle, Executive Director of the NC Coalition of Alternatives to the Death Penalty (NCCADP), will moderate a panel discussion ending with Q&A. Panelists will include Alfred Rivera, an exoneree from NC death row; and Pastor Dewey Williams, former chaplain on NC’s death row, and author of “Finding Joy on Death Row: Unexpected Lessons from Lives We Discarded.” We hope you will join us to become more “proximate” to the work to end this cruel practice in NC. At this event, there will also be an opportunity to sign a letter from “People of Faith” asking Gov. Cooper to commute the sentences of people on North Carolina’s death row. Hosts for this event, which is free and open to the community, include: Eno Friends Meeting, Orange Cooperative Parish, Mt. Bright Missionary Baptist & St. Matthew’s Episcopal Church. Racist Roots is a project of the Center for Death Penalty Litigation.
