When I tell people I’m curating a history exhibit in Cary, I’m surprised at the number of times they express surprise that Cary has a history predating the Research Triangle Park. Yes, Cary has a rich history, including a distinctive African American history. Learn about one leader in the town’s history during this special exhibit.
The exhibit running Jan. 11-Feb. 17, 2017 highlights the life of Rev. J.W. Meadows and his contributions to Cary after Reconstruction. To learn about his life is to learn more about Cary. Join us during the exhibit run dates and during a special reception, free and open to the public on Jan. 27, 6-8p.m., at the Page Walker Arts & History Center. With guidance from Page-Walker Arts and History Center program director Kris Carmichael and NCSU Department of History professor Tammy Gordon, Ph.D., I created what I hope will be a compelling narrative about a challenging time in history.
The Friends of the Page-Walker Hotel made this event possible. Learn more here.
