THE DURHAM CIVIL RIGHTS HISTORY MURAL

Beginning in 2013, 30 diverse community members, ages 15-65, came together during a 16-week period to engage in Durham’s Civil Rights History through a series of lectures, music performances, research and design workshops. The group then gathered what they discovered into a collaborative mural design. In late May-July 2014 these same folks, with the help of the greater community, will paint this 2400 square foot mural in downtown Durham, under the direction of muralist Brenda Miller Holmes. Melloweb has been filming this creative process for the past two years and will produce a feature length documentary and an interactive educational website.
