New Hanover County Changemaker Series

Thursday, February 23, 2023

Join the NHC Office of Diversity and Equity to kick-off a year long series entitled “Changemakers”. The series features panel discussions around local individuals and their amazing stories of overcoming challenges, helping change lives and our community.

The first session will feature Cape Fear Museum Historian, Dr. Jan Davidson and six local residents who will help us explore the history of race relations in NHC and their personal stories.

February’s Featured Changemakers

  • Ronald Sparks & Charles Boney, Jr. - two men navigate friendship through a violent season of school integration
  • Brian Jones & James Jones - a father and son navigate the challenges of race and parenting in the South
  • Francine DeCoursey & Stacy Smith Gause - a Big Buddy advocate, mentors a set of twins living in Wilmington’s Inner-city and learns to navigate discrimination and cultural differences for more than 37 years.

This session kicks off on February 23rd at 6 pm and will be offered in-person at the Cape Fear Museum in the Williston Room or virtually on Zoom. In-person availability is limited.
