Feedback form is now closed.
In an effort to address current events and bring factual knowledge surrounding controversial events to the community, Atkins Library collaborated with the Dept. of History at UNC Charlotte and a branch of the public library to present a series of historical programs based on the Confederacy. Included were North Carolina's role in the Confederacy, Confederate monuments in the 21st century South, two genealogical workshops (one focusing on North Carolina and the other on African American genealogy), and a film screening of Free State of Jones, a recent movie that focuses on the actions of a Confederate soldier who defied Confederate orders. These varied events helped to link the relationship of the university and public libraries as well as enhance the university library's position in the community.
