Wednesday, September 9, 2015

The Center for the Study of the American South at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill is sponsoring a screening of The Toughest Job: William Winter’s Mississippi, a documentary on former Governor William Winter’s efforts to pass the state’s Education Reform Act of 1982.

The free screening will be followed by a discussion with Governor Winter and former North Carolina Governor Jim Hunt, moderated by David Dodson, president of the Durham-based nonprofit MDC.

The event will be held tonight from 5:30-7:30 at the University’s FedEx Global Education Center.

You can view a trailer of the film here.
