We are thrilled to announce that award-winning journalist and UVA alumna Katie Couric will be in Charlottesville on Wednesday, April 4 to present two special preview screenings and discussions of an episode of her new National Geographic series, America Inside Out with Katie Couric.
The episode to be screened is titled Re-Righting History and centers around the battle over removing Confederate monuments and renaming buildings, schools, and roads named after Confederate generals. It also includes Couric’s first-hand experiences of the events of August 11 and 12 in Charlottesville.
The first event will be held at 3:00 PM at Culbreth Theatre and is open to UVA students, faculty, and staff. An evening event for the local community will follow at 7:00 PM in The Paramount Theater. Both events will feature post-screening discussions where Couric and moderator Larry Sabato, director of the UVA Center for Politics, will be joined by members of the UVA and Charlottesville communities featured in the episode.
Tickets are free and will be available starting at noon on Friday, March 23. There will be a limit of two tickets per person for each event.
Tickets for the 3:00 PM Culbreth Theatre event will be distributed in person through the UVA Arts Box Office and are available only to the UVA community. UVA students, faculty, and staff must show a valid UVA ID at the UVA Arts Box Office, located in the Drama Building at 109 Culbreth Road.
Tickets for the 7:00 PM Paramount Theater event can be reserved online at theparamount.net, by calling 434-979-1333, or in person at The Paramount Theater Box Office on the Downtown Mall at 215 East Main Street.
