Our City, Our Stories

April 22, 2010 @ 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm

All Durham residents are invited to attend to share their stories and enjoy free refreshments:

The Pauli Murray Project wants to give everyone the chance to tell their Durham stories and listen to those of others. Our goal is to empower Durham’s residents to see their “whole past,” as Pauli Murray suggests in her book Proud Shoes, not as something to hide, but as a powerful tool for shaping the future. The time is right for dialogue; a Durham history museum is being planned. In many museums, not everyone’s voices are heard and parts of history are downplayed or erased. Let’s not let that happen in here. Let’s share our stories with our neighbors and create a safe place for open dialogue.

These community programs are supported by a grant from the North Carolina Humanities Council, a state affiliate of the National Endowment for the Humanities.
