Race in the Winton Triangle: Symposium at C.S. Brown

May 30, 2015 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm

How did race play a role in the Winton Triangle?  Chowan Discovery Group founder and Executive Director, Marvin T. Jones, will discuss this issue at a forum with fellow panelists and the audience at the C.S. Brown Cultural Arts Center in Winton, N.C.  The Winton Triangle’s unusual tri-racial history provided extra dimensions to the usual white v. black descriptions of southern life.  Copies of book, Carolina Genesis: Beyond the Color Line, will be available for signing by Jones.  Jones’ essay in the book gives a history of the Winton Triangle.  Here is a NC Public Radio interview about the the Winton Triangle.

The “Who Are We” forum is hosted by P. Michelle Felton, and is the first James Andrew Felton and Annie Vaughn Felton Symposium.
