Wilmington, North Carolina - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia (991 words)
Wilmington is also known as the childhood home of basketball great Michael Jordan and journalist David Brinkley; famous Wilmington natives include Sugar Ray Leonard, Charles Kuralt, Charlie Daniels, Roman Gabriel and Meadowlark Lemon.
In November 1898 Wilmington was the scene of a violent attack by a well-organized group of whites who burned an African American printing press, and then went to the north side of town where a number of Blacks were killed and many were run out of town.
Wilmington is not currently served by passenger trains, though a link between the city and Raleigh, the state capital, is in the planning stages.
