(CANCELED) The Founding Fathers of Black Wall Street

Saturday, Mar. 21, 7 p.m.

In light of Governor Roy Cooper’s State of Emergency Declaration on March 10, the North Carolina Museum of History has decided to postpone The Founding Fathers of Black Wall Street program until further notice. The health and wellbeing of visitors, staff and volunteers is our highest priority.

Refunds will be available up until this Saturday, March 14, at 5 p.m.

This dramatic performance portrays the story of three men who, at the turn of the 1900s, established what would become the nation’s largest African American business, North Carolina Mutual Life Insurance Company. Their dedication uplifted the community, helped create 200 African American businesses, and led to Durham’s downtown district becoming known as “Black Wall Street.” Along the way, these men discovered that the true spirit of success comes from believing in oneself.

$20 per person; $15 for MOHA/museum members
