2020 Community Luncheon

Wednesday, May 6, 2020  •  Noon–1:30 PM
Benton Convention Center, Salem Ballroom (upper level)
Winston-Salem, North Carolina

The Foundation is committed to advancing racial equity across all our work in Forsyth County, and we believe we must first understand our history in order to become a community where race no longer predicts life outcomes.

This year’s multi-media program highlights the history and policies that created residential segregation, both locally and throughout the U.S. We welcome Dr. Elizabeth Herbin-Triant, assistant professor of history at the University of Massachusetts Lowell and author of Threatening Property: Race, Class, and Campaigns to Legislate Jim Crow Neighborhoods, which focuses on Winston-Salem. She’ll be joined in conversation with Dr. Russ Smith, professor of geography at Winston-Salem State University and faculty lead of the Spatial Justice Studio.

We hope you will join us on May 6 as we continue to learn together.
