Be sure and visit the Durham Museum of History for “Nuevo Espíritu de Durham: New Spirit of Durham”! This exhibit will examine Durham’s rapidly growing Latino population, its diversity, challenges and triumphs, and its future as a well-established part of the Durham community. Key topics to be explored will be immigration, building a community support system, developing resources, and activism which will be depicted primarily through the personal perspectives of individual community members. This exhibit will be presented in both English and Spanish. Learn more here.

The Museum has partnered with award-winning filmmaker, Rodrigo Dorfman to connect with Durham’s Latino community to archive their stories. A companion blog is now live  http://modhlatinxproject.home.blog.
