Lasting Legacy: 2019 Black History In Durham

Posted by Discover Durham Staff on Jan 15, 2019 3:33:25 PM

The history of African-Americans in Durham is as integral to our story as the mortar and brick that built the Bull City. Grit, fortitude, and the unapologetic pursuit of justice are lasting legacies of a community that influenced the progress of Americans toward equality from coast to coast.

We know Monday, January 21 is a federal holiday to honor the non-violent resistance and social mobilization efforts of an incredible figure: Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

But how much do you know about his connection to Durham?

Here, we're taking a look back at King's history in Durham, and we look forward to recognizing Black History Month in Durham during this commemorative 150th year of the Bull City. His legacy persists deep within our community.
