African American Heritage Guide

Far from iron encased behind glass facades, black history lives and breathes among Durham streets traversed for generations. Markers, murals, homes, and heritage coalesce to honor the stories of our African American community, and here, we humbly continue in the treasured tradition of storytelling.

We encourage you to explore Durham’s African American Heritage Guide to learn about the people, places, and events that helped shape Durham into what it is today.
