Through Survivors' Eyes: The Fight to Resist White Supremacy

November 9th

Sally Bermanzohn, Ph.D. & Paul Bermanzohn, M.D. are survivors of the 1979 Greensboro Massacre. This was when the KKK and Neo-Nazis opened fire on a group of demonstrators who were about to begin a march against the KKK. Five people were killed, nine were wounded. At the time of the assault, Sally was pregnant with their daughter, and Paul was shot in the head and arm – injuries that have left him paralyzed on the left side of his body to this day. Come listen to Sally and Paul talk to the UVM community about how these events fit into the historical context of white supremacy, what we can do as a community to combat this hate, and move toward a more just society.

Thursday, November 9th from 4:00-6:00pm, Davis Center Sugar Maple Ballroom
