The 8:46 Series. Hosted by the YMCA and the NCCJ.

Beyond The 8:46 Series

It will take a sustained, collective effort across all sectors of our society to create real change.

The 8:46 Series* was originally launched in August 2020, educating 900 community members on systemic racism and its impact on our society. The 8:46 Series returns in 2021 with additional topics to educate our community. 

Hosted by the NCCJ of the Piedmont Triad and the YMCA of Greensboro.

*Note: In 2020, we named The 8:46 Series for the eight minutes and forty-six second period when the officer’s knee was on George Floyd’s neck. As we have since learned, the officer’s knee was in fact pressed against Floyd’s neck for over 9 minutes.
