Documentary Film Screening: The Romey Lynchings

The Romey Lynchings tells the story of the deaths of Nou'la and Hasna Romey in Lake City, Florida, in 1929. N'oula Romey was the fourth victim of racial terror that year in Florida and one of 10 people who were lynched by white mobs across the U.S. in 1929 alone. Just hours before, his wife, Hasna (Fannie) Rahme, was fatally shot by Lake City police in the couple's store. 

Akram Khater, professor of history and director of the Khayrallah Center, and Susanna Lee, associate professor of history, will lead a Q&A session following the showing of this compelling 30-minute documentary.

In addition to the documentary, the Khayrallah Center has created a website for exploring the Romey lynchings. You can watch a trailer for the documentary, read a full-length narrative, search through historical documents and explore how events unfolded on an interactive map. 

Parking will be available at NC State’s coliseum deck at 201 Jeter Drive. Parking is free after 5 p.m.
