Lest It Never Be Told: A Conversation about Durham Histories — November 3rd, 12 noon

PMP signature

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.

November 3rd at 12 pm at the John Hope Franklin Center, Room 240

  1. Thanks for sending these announcement. I like that they are during
    lunch hour. I will try to make the one tomorrow if I can. Any chance
    of them being recorded and available to non-attendees (for a fee))?
