The YMCA of Greensboro and the NCCJ of the Piedmont Triad have partnered to launch a community initiative called The 8:46 Series. The project will educate and equip the community with a foundational understanding of the issue of systemic racism. The organizers aim to reach a minimum of 846 community members and hope to inspire future collaboration of like-minded individuals and/or entities who are working toward meaningful change in the community.

The 8:46 Series will leverage the Racial Equity Institute’s “Groundwater Approach” as the platform for a three-hour webinar.

There will be six sessions of the webinar, with a maximum of 150 participants each. Participants would engage in one virtual session of their choice. Additionally, participants will be provided with opportunities after the webinar.

The cost is $40 per participant. Limited financial assistance is available. The first session is scheduled for 1 p.m. Aug. 19.

Repairs to the bridge supports were made at the Morehead Park trailhead parking area on the Downtown Greenway along Spring Garden Street in 2019 and early 2020; all of the paint design on the bridge supports was removed as a part of that process. The Greenway Public Art Selection Panel has issued a Call to Artists to commission a replacement for this work.

Submissions will be due Sept. 10.
