Exhibit featuring personal narratives that illustrate how LGBTQ people in Durham have a long, but often invisible, history of overcoming adversity to form a community. It blends oral history and displayed artifacts; seven objects accompany oral history segments shared with museum visitors via individual mp3 players. Visitors will also have the opportunity to share their own experiences in our Story Room, an oral history recording booth available during open hours or by appointment.
This exhibit features a companion website, hosted by the Durham County Library. Love and Liberation: A History of LGBTQ+ Durham, goes live on the web Oct. 1 at DurhamLGBTQHistory.org.
