“Telling Our Regional Story: The Narratives that Unite and Divide in North Carolina,” is based on recommendations of the American Academy of Arts and Sciences report Our Common Purpose: Reinventing American Democracy for the 21st Century from the Academy’s Commission on the Practice of Democratic Citizenship. The recommendation urges conversations to craft new narratives of the American past. The event will connect the UNC and Duke communities, exploring how history informs the present for North Carolinians.
