LETTER TO THE EDITOR
The Paul Green Foundation, which makes grants to diverse organizations working in the arts and human rights, stands with those who peacefully protest the brutality inflicted on our citizens of color by police and other authorities.
Like Paul Green, North Carolina playwright and civil rights activist of the last century, we cannot be silent while some wrest from others their rights to liberty and equality under the law. The need for change is urgent.
The Paul Green Foundation expresses its deepest sympathy for the families of George Floyd and all the others who have lost their lives at the hands of mindless or cruel extremists. All of us must strive toward harmony and justice and work together to lift one another up.
Laurence G. Avery, president, Paul Green Foundation, Chapel Hill
