Lest it Never Be Told: A Conversation About Durham Histories

What are the stories we know about Durham? What about stories we haven’t heard so often? How do some stories become well known while others fade from public view? How do histories shape the way we think about our hometown? What would it mean to bring some of the lesser-known stories to light? In the spirit of Pauli Murray, this panel discussion explores Durham stories along this continuum and offers insights into the ways that history shapes our contemporary views.

Panel Participants:
Leslie Brown, Assistant Professor of History, Williams College
David Cecelski, Independent Historian and Writer
Charmaine McKissick-Melton, Associate Professor of English and Mass
Communications, North Carolina Central University
Andre’ Vann, University Archive at the Shepard Library, North Carolina Central

Panel Moderator:
Barbara Lau, Director of the Pauli Murray Project, an initiative of the Duke Human

Panel Sponsors:
Franklin Humanties Institute’s ”Wednesday at the Center” Series, Pauli Murray Project at the Duke Human Rights Center and the Andrus Family Fund.
