Fall 2018 HSNC Meeting
October 12 @ 2:00 pm - 9:00 pm
The Historical Society of North Carolina will meet Friday, October 12, 2018 on the campus of Meredith College at Raleigh with faculty member and HSNC member Dan Fountain as our host.
Our afternoon program will be devoted to the recent compilation of HSNC members Larry Tise and Jeff Crow, New Voyages to Carolina: Reinterpreting North Carolina History, (UNC Press, 2017) which presents a powerful and unique approach for comprehending and sharing North Carolina’s history. This recent publication may very well change how we all have been presenting the history of the Old North State.
At our business meeting we will be electing officers and a council member for the coming year, as well as presenting our annual awards.
Outgoing President Maury York will deliver the evening address: “A State of Shock”: the Desegregation of Public Schools in Franklin County, North Carolina, 1965-1968- very apropos subject for reflection after a half-century.
