It was great! I will go again. The reason for a 4 rating is the musicians lights on the music stands were blinding and did not make a good ambiance night. The music was great.

Very friendly and helpful. Historic building. A resource for the community. Bricks used to build a Church were fired by brickmaker Richard Burton, Fitzgerald, and Robert G Fitzgerald. They have about 150 years of where, but the clay used is excellent and the bricks are well-made and you can see it the care and the competence in the state of the brick today. Historically important area of Durham with a vibrant future ahead. On Monday nights or maybe Wednesday evenings (I can’t remember exactly) they have African dance class for the community.

Not very friendly or helpful on each visit. The man behind the glass. Mr Markus offered just enough information so he didn't have to get up and show anyone around. Asking for room rental rates I was asked to call back several times over three months. Mr. Markus didn't know Mrs. Polly in the back when she was available didn't know and the director was not available. After being told Tuesdays and Thursdays were available. It was suddenly booked by a yoga class and the room was not available any longer. I have the destinct feeling I didn't know the secret handshake Or grease the right palm. Good to see the old boys network alive and well in impoverished areas of Durham. Still the very heart of culture in Durham NC.

Not a lot of parking but enough for a group meeting between 25 to 30 people.
