Statewide Study - The Wilmington Coup of 1898

Statewide Study - The Wilmington Coup of 1898

If you had a similar reaction to us last Wednesday, you were completely glued to your phone or computer as you watched an organized white nationalist formation take over the US Capitol building -- intent on inspiring fear, violence, and stopping democratic process.  

Here is the thing: it is of vital importance to remember that we’ve seen this before. In this country. As black and brown progressive political power is built, there is a violent white political reaction. We know this from Post-Reconstruction America. Look no further than our own state for one of the most violent white supremacist coups of that time, Wilmington, NC in 1898. 

Please join us for a statewide political education program on the Wilmington Coup of 1898 at 5:30pm on January 19th -- the day before Inauguration Day. We will be studying the Wilmington Coup and drawing lessons from that to the current political moment we find ourselves in. RSVP Below

CJJ’s response to January 6th, aside from continuing to take action to defend our democracy, is to call our membership into a collective study of this history. We must take a hard look at the past in order to move strategically now, and build a better tomorrow. 

**If you are attending please try and read this piece ahead of time. Encouraged but not required for attendance.**
