Durham Station hosts Civil Rights Heritage Project

Stop by to see the banners before they leave in mid-January.

The rich history of Durham has been captured in the form of oral histories and photos in the Durham Civil Rights Heritage Project.  The project features eleven 6′ fabric banners containing photos, quotes from interviews with local people, and text recalling the history of Durham’s African-American community during the Civil Rights Movement. 

The project is on display until mid-January. Visitors are encouraged to take time to read the stories and look at the photographs on the upper level of Durham Station.

Everyone is invited to sign the register at the information desk and to add comments about the experience.

Have you had a chance to check it out? We’d love to hear your thoughts!
