The Museum of Durham History opens its newest exhibit with a public reception coinciding with the Museum’s regular involvement in Durham’s Third Fridays.
Complimentary light refreshments and beverages will be available, and jazz guitarist Ashesh Chatterjee will perform under the gazebo.
Robb Teer, Nello Sr.’s grandson, will be on hand to sign copies of his book “Courage Ever – An American Success Story – Nello L. Teer, Sr. & His Company.”
Many in Durham have heard the Teer name, but few know the backstory of the family or company it founded. A crippling injury, Jim Crow denouncement, Blue Ridge Parkway contribution, even Cherry Point rattlesnakes — these are just a few of the details found in a tale that spans more than a century and extends to countries around the world.
