Arts & Humanities Lecture Series: Freedom Park – Part 1 @ Weymouth Center for the Arts & Humanities
Feb 13 @ 2:00 pm – 4:00 pm

“Freedom Park: The Inspiring Story of How a Monument to Freedom is Built while Confederate Statues are Coming Down”

In 2001, the Paul Green Foundation initiated a tribute to the African American struggle for freedom in this state.  Although it took twenty years of planning and fundraising, the ground was broken in 2021 in the center of Raleigh for North Carolina Freedom Park. Designed by the late Phil Freelon (lead architect of the National Museum of African American History and Culture in Washington), the Park will provide a more complete story of North Carolina’s history to the visitors and especially for the thousands of school children who annually come by buses from across the state as part of their 4th and 8th grade study of North Carolina history. While statues to Confederate soldiers and white supremacists are coming down, this monument project is, in the words of Dr. John Hope Franklin, “…a continuing reminder of…how much more we need to do to achieve equity and justice in our society.”  Ribbon cutting will be in late 2022.

Part 1: Sunday February 13, 2022, at 2 pm. with presenter, Marsha Warren

Part 1 features poet Marsha Warren, the 2018 NC Literary Hall of Fame inductee who established the N.C. Literary Hall of Fame (with Poet Laureate Sam Ragan), and the1991 recipient of the Sam Ragan Award for Contributions to the Fine Arts.

Part 2: Sunday, March 13, 2022, at 2 pm.

Lecture part 2 begins with speaker Reginald Hildebrand, author and former co-chair of the North Carolina Freedom Monument Project, and former Professor of African American Studies and History at Williams College in Williamstown, Massachusetts and at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.

Following Reginald Hildebrand, speaker Reginald Hodges, a member of the North Carolina Freedom Park board of directors, and former Executive Director of the Durham Literacy Center, 2004-2014.
