Second Annual Carrboro Anarchist Bookfair

Carrboro’s second annual anarchist book fair will take place on Saturday, November 12. The book fair will run all day; other events geared towards both organizing and entertainment will take place throughout the weekend. Book lovers, firebrands, and the simply curious are all invited! Anarchists have been in the news a lot this past year, and this is a good opportunity to find out what all the hubbub is really about.

Are you involved with a radical bookshop, organizing group, or publishing project? Don’t delay–email carrborobookfair@gmail.com to reserve a table, volunteer to help, or suggest activities. The deadline for reserving tables is November 1. We’ll also be hosting workshops, presentations, and discussions–feel free to propose to offer one.

Just like last year, we are asking groups to pay a small tabling fee, but it’s important to us that tabling be accessible to groups that do not expect to make any money.

50th Anniversary Commemoration of Vickers v Chapel Hill-Carrboro Schools

From the Town of Carrboro:

50th Anniversary Commemoration of Vickers v Chapel Hill-Carrboro Schools

This landmark civil rights case was rendered from the United States Federal Court in August of 1961. The case changed the course of school integration in the Chapel Hill-Carrboro District and served as a model for antidiscrimination in schools within North Carolina and across the Southeastern United States.

The program will salute the courage exhibited by Carrboro native Stanley Vickers, his parents, and a multi-racial community support system that took a bold stand for equity and justice a half-century ago.

Monday, August 29, 2011
5:30 PM until 7:00 PM
Second Floor - Century Hall
The Century Center
