Alamance Community College
WORKING IN PROTEST was developed from 30 years of work documenting dissent. The day after director Michael Galinsky graduated from high school in 1987, the Klu Klux Klan marched in his hometown, and he captured video of the event. Over the ensuing years, he increasingly pointed his camera at a host of protest movements, and he and his partner Suki Hawley created short pieces out of this work. As they examined the footage so many years later, a number of themes emerged regarding race, power, and media. Piecing together the various stories, they crafted an observational narrative about the recent history of protest in the U.S.
Director and editor Suki Hawley will be in attendance for a Q&A after the screening. Please note that this screening will be at Alamance Community College. Admission is free, but seating is limited, so please arrive early. Doors open at 6:30 PM, and the film starts promptly at 7:00 PM.

Mebane Historical Museam
On Friday, February 23rd, Film Night on Clay Street, the Mebane Historical Museum, and the Alamance NAACP will present Wilmington on Fire, an award-winning documentary that chronicles The Wilmington Massacre of 1898.
November 10th, 1898, is a day to remember. That morning a large and heavily armed white mob attacked the African American community in Wilmington, NC, and by the end of the day the mob successfully overthrew the local government. With countless African-Americans killed and forced out of the city, the Massacre helped propel the White Supremacy movement and Jim Crow segregation throughout the state and the rest of the American South. Omitted from most history books and nearly forgotten, the Massacre finally became known to the general public in 2006 when the North Carolina General Assembly published a report on the tragedy. WILMINGTON ON FIRE tells the story of the Massacre unlike it's ever been told before.
Director Christopher Everett will be in attendance for a Q&A after the screening. Please note that this screening will be at the Mebane Historical Museum (209 West Jackson St.). Admission is free, but seating is limited, so please arrive early. Doors open at 7 PM, and the film starts promptly at 7:30 PM.
