2019 Fall Symposium – Thursday Afternoon Sessions

November 07, 2019

ADVANCE REGISTRATION IS NOW CLOSED. LIMITED SPACE IS AVAILABLE FOR ON-SITE REGISTRATION

BENDING THE ARC: WILLIS GRAVES JR. AND THE PURSUIT OF JUSTICE. This original short play, commissioned by Preservation NC from award-winning playwright and poet, Howard Craft, will explore the Raleigh roots of Willis Graves Jr.’s dogged pursuit of justice for African Americans as a civil rights attorney during the 1920s-1950s in Detroit. The play will highlight the inspiration for his commitment to justice: his father, Willis Graves Sr., builder of the Graves-Fields House who was heavily involved in social justice causes in Raleigh, and ran for the NC House of Representatives in 1898. It will focus on Willis Graves Jr.’s involvement in the famous Ossian Sweet trial, where he worked with Clarence Darrow, and his role as a lawyer for the NAACP Legal Defense Fund in the landmark U.S. Supreme Court case, Shelley v. Kramer, working with Thurgood Marshall. That case invalidated the use of racially restrictive covenants.

PRESERVATION AND ITS ROLE IN SOCIAL JUSTICE PANEL [PART 2]: AFFORDABLE HOUSING AND OUR CHANGING NEIGHBORHOODS social justice, housing advocates, and preservationists to discuss current issues of affordable housing and our changing neighborhoods. Panelists: Dr. Tom Hanchett (Community Historian), James Perry (Winston-Salem Urban League), April Johnson (Preservation Durham), Charles Francis (The Francis Law Firm), Gregg Warren (DHIC, Inc.)

HOUSE MOVING AND LIFTING: WHEN IS IT APPROPRIATE? We’re tackling house moving and lifting with an in-depth discussion sharing practical expertise and advice from a range of perspectives.
