Racist Roots Screening and Panel Discussion at Omni Cinemas in Fayetteville

May 23 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm

Join us Thursday, May 23rd at 6:30 pm at Omni Cinemas in Fayetteville, NC for The Racist Roots of NC’s death penalty and the Commutation Campaign to end it! Racist Roots is a powerful 25-minute film that reveals North Carolina death penalty’s deep entanglement with slavery, lynching, and racism. Nick Courmon will perform spoken word poetry, and will moderate a panel discussion following the film. Panelists include Andre Smith, who lost his son to homicide, and Jerome Bell, who serves on the Board of Directors for Fayetteville PACT. The evening will conclude with a call to action to write Gov. Cooper asking him to commute all death sentences.
This event is presented by the North Carolina Coalition for Alternatives to the Death Penalty in partnership with Fayetteville PACT and VoteRiders. Racist Roots is a project of the Center for Death Penalty Litigation.
