How Far Have We Come?

HIGH POINT, N.C., Jan. 19, 2017 — With the month of February commemorating African American heritage, the High Point Convention & Visitors Bureau (HPCVB) will host a panel discussion on the newly released documentary film, The March on an All-American City.  The documentary gives a chronological timeline of how an African American community and an All-American City survived the racial tension of the 1960s.  “The film gives a glimpse into the history of High Point’s African American community when it was fighting for integration and equality during the Civil Rights Movement,” says Phyllis Bridges, historian and producer of the film.  Prominent citizens of High Point share their stories, experiences and knowledge about a critical time in the city’s history as the walls of segregation came tumbling down. 

The discussion will be held at the Regional Visitors Center, Feb. 9 from 1:30 p.m. to 3 p.m.  The first half of the program will focus on the 60s Civil Rights Movement and the second half will focus on modern race relations.  Panelists will include Phyllis Bridges and Mary Lou Blakeney.   Please RSVP to Kimberly Mozingo at 336.884.5255 or kmozingo@highpoint.org
