Stories of Black Women who changed Chapel Hill

Have you seen Chapel Hill's new digital exhibit? Check out the exhibit “I Was Still Singing”, a digital exhibit highlighting the contributions of Black women throughout Chapel Hill’s history. The goal of this exhibit is to educate and inspire local people and to honor the women who have contributed so much to the Chapel Hill community.

The exhibit was created from dozens of oral and video histories, primary source documents and photographs, and many meetings with our community elders to listen and learn about our history. -Chapel Hill Website
