Friday, April 30 at 5:30 p.m.

Taylor Books, 226 Capitol Street, Charleston, WV

Not in Our Town tells the uplifting story of how the residents of Billings, Montana, joined together when their neighbors were threatened by white supremacists. Townspeople of all races and religions swiftly moved into action. Religious and community leaders, labor union volunteers, law enforcement, the local newspapers and concerned individuals stood united and spoke loudly for a hate-free community, proclaiming in no uncertain terms "Not In Our Town!" This critically acclaimed PBS special sparked a national campaign against hate crimes that continues to grow each year.

Sponsored by the Civil Rights Division of the Attorney General's Office, Charleston Area Alliance, Create WV, NAACP-Charleston, OneKanawha, St. John' Episcopal Church, Taylor Books, Temple Israel, Unitarian Universalist Congregation, WV FREE and YWCA.

Taylor Books will have live music afterwards. So come on down for a night in Charleston's beautiful downtown!
