Why this petition matters

Started by Frank Bowers

Charles B. Aycock, who is an ancestor of mine, is celebrated throughout North Carolina.  However, his leadership role in the Wilmington Massacre of 1898 cannot be overlooked.  It is clear that we need to end the celebration of a known white supremacist, and I am calling for the complete shut down of the Charles B. Aycock Birthplace.

With these funds, I am petitioning that we create a comprehensive memorial and education center in Wilmington, NC about the Wilmington Massacre of 1898.
