with David Zucchino

 Recent events at our nation's Capitol might not surprise David Zucchino, who will talk about Wilmington's Lie: The Murderous Coup of 1898 and the Rise of White Supremacy. By the 1890s, Wilmington was North Carolina's largest city and a shining example of a mixed-race community. There were successful black-owned businesses and an African American newspaper, The Record. But across the state — and the South — white supremacists were working to reverse the advances made by former slaves and their progeny. The result was a brutal insurrection, when more than 2,000 rioters attempted to violently overthrow an elected government. It was not a "race riot," as the events of November 1898 came to be known, but rather a racially motivated rebellion launched by white supremacists. Join us to learn about a dramatic and definitive account of a remarkable but forgotten chapter of American history.

Mindfulness & Meditation

While stress in life is unavoidable, it can be managed with a variety of tools. Join Robyn Nemes as she describes and illustrates "tapping," an easy technique that involves literally "tapping" on certain meridian points of the body to shift stressful emotions and beliefs to life-affirming relaxation, trust, peace, freedom, or other desired outcomes. Learn to calm your brain and avoid the "fight, flight" or freeze responses. You will learn the acupressure points and how to tap through them, and will practice through a group session relating to releasing fear and stress.

Story & Song Art Gallery

Story & Song  Book Group

Based on the real story of a reform school that operated for 111 years and warped the lives of thousands of children, The Nickel Boys is a devastating, driven narrative that showcases a great American novelist writing at the height of his powers. 

 

When Elwood Curtis, a black boy growing up in 1960s Tallahassee, is unfairly sentenced to a juvenile reformatory called the Nickel Academy, he finds himself trapped in a grotesque chamber of horrors. Elwood's only salvation is his friendship with fellow "delinquent" Turner, which deepens despite Turner's conviction that Elwood is hopelessly naive, that the world is crooked, and that the only way to survive is to scheme and avoid trouble. As life at the Academy becomes ever more perilous, the tension between Elwood's ideals and Turner's skepticism leads to a decision whose repercussions will echo down the decades.
