a walk to remember

Next Monday our class will meet at the site of our new project in downtown Greensboro [more details to come]. Prior to doing so, however, Stephanie and I plan to participate in this event honoring our nation, our city and our school's past, present and future. Please join us if you can:

Dear HES students, faculty and staff,

On Monday, Feb. 1, members of the UNCG community will retrace the steps taken by at least two of the three white Woman’s College students who joined the Woolworth Sit-in demonstrations on Feb. 4, 1960. This walk will start on the UNCG campus and conclude in the downtown area.

In support of our UNCG African American Studies Department which is sponsoring this event, I would like to invite you to participate in this walk if your schedule permits. HES students, faculty and staff who are able to participate will meet in front of Stone Building at 11:15 and then proceed to the Guilford Dorm to join other UNCG community members. We will then complete the walk to the downtown area. A bus will be available for those wishing to participate who may not be able to walk the entire distance. HEAT buses will also be available to bring you back to campus.

Please consider joining us if your schedule allows you to do so.
