This discussion will open with a viewing of the 2007 documentary, ‘A Dream Deferred,’ which presents a social, historical and cultural view of the conditions and events leading to the 1968 Wilmington Riots following the assassination of Civil Rights leader Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Among the issues for discussion will be economic equality, poverty, discrimination, housing, education and urban development. The aftermath of the riot will also be a critical part of the discussion.
