Events This Week at the ICRCM

Children's Story Hour Saturday Children's Story Hour
Saturday, April 26 at 11 a.m.

Join dynamic leaders in our community as they conduct a story hour at 11 a.m. on Saturdays. After the stories, children will complete their very own make-and-take arts activity. All books are written for children, and are geared toward ages 5-12. At least once a month, one of the books will focus on healthy food choices and fitness activities. In this way, ICRCM, along with 500 other cultural organizations, participates in First Lady Michelle Obama’s Let’s Move: Museums & Gardens, an initiative aimed at reducing childhood obesity. The Saturday Children’s Story Hour is generously supported by a grant from the Gannett Foundation.

Greensboro Police Reform:
Creating a Model of Justice & Accountability

Saturday, April 26 at 2:30 p.m.

Current news media coverage has often focused on charges of police misconduct, racial profiling, brutality, and excessive force resulting in deaths. Many citizens, alarmed about the possible violation of civil rights, have called for the creation of review boards to monitor law enforcement personnel. Participate in a community forum discussing the merits of a police review board for the City of Greensboro.

This discussion is led by: Barbara Lawrence, MPA, JD, Assistant Professor, Justice and Policy Studies, Guilford College, Greensboro, NC James P. Mayes, MA, JD, Interim Chair, Department of Political Science & Criminal Justice, North Carolina A&T State University, Greensboro, NC

This program is part of In the News: Headlines and Headliners, a current events forum underwritten by American Express Philanthropy.

A message to our generous supporters.

We opened our doors on February 1, 2010— more than three years ago. During this short time ICRCM has garnered a stellar reputation for promoting an understanding of the struggles for social justice and equality in the United States and across the world. In fact, through ICRCM, we link Greensboro to the world. We thank you for standing beside us, boosting our morale, and providing much needed financial support. And we ask that you continue this journey with us in the coming months and years.

We invite you to commit to furthering democracy and freedom through the work of the ICRCM. Before the end of 2013, please donate to show your endorsement of ICRCM’s efforts in your community.

With profound gratitude for your support, let us simply say “Thank you.”
