Don’t miss this upcoming program-“A Community Dialogue about School Desegregation”-part of the North Carolina Collection’s Commemorating Courage series, presented with Duke University’s Pauli Murray Project.
The program will be held this Sunday, August 22, to honor the first African-American students to integrate several of Durham’s previously all white schools and to mark the 50th anniversary of the first of these students to graduate from Durham High School. We invite you to bring your memories of Durham or the places you grew up-to share your stories and learn from the stories of your neighbors.
Thanks for helping to get the word out! I look forward to seeing you on the 22th.
