NAACP and Working Films bring Moral Movies series to NC
The NAACP and Wilmington's Working Films are bringing a series of documentaries to Asheville, Charlotte, Durham, Greensboro, Greenville, Raleigh and Wilmington dealing with issues that have come to the forefront since the Pope TeaBagger takeover of the state's government.
The films include American Teacher; contrasting the testimonies of the actual experiences of classroom teachers with education reform advocates; American Winter, looking at the struggles of families after the economic crisis; Freedom Summer on the 1964 wave of student Civil Rights activism; and Inequality for All, Robert Reich's examination of wealth inequality.
The local groups co-sponsoring the event include the NC NAACP, The North Carolina Association of Educators (NCAE), the Tar Heel Alliance of Classroom Teachers (tACT), the NC AFL-CIO, Democracy NC, the NC Justice Center, The Durham People's Alliance, The Mountain People's Assembly, Beloved Community Center, Action NC, Pitt County NAACP, New Hanover County NAACP, and the Black Arts Alliance. The organizers hope to replicate and further the success of Moral Monday protests in awareness raising and "to offer a forum for community members to share their perspectives, identify common ground, and discuss potential solutions to the problems at hand."
