Finding Reconciliation

Finding reconciliation: #OUDC22 toured Greensboro with the Beloved Community Center, learning about the Greensboro Four who catalyzed the sit-in movement by refusing to leave a Woolworth’s counter in 1960, efforts to integrate schools and movie theaters, and much more. They also met with survivors of the 1979 Greensboro Massacre, during which KKK and Neo-Nazis fired on a peaceful demonstration (with police complicity), killing five. The community created a Truth and Reconciliation Commission to help the city find healing and rebuild community ties.
