Looking for a New Volunteer Opportunity? Why not join us!Posted on March 24, 2022
Durham is recognized nationally as the “Tastiest Town in the South” and “America’s Foodiest Small Town” and its epicurean appeal draws visitors from all over the world. On April 29th, the Museum will celebrate the opening of Durham Restaurants, an exhibithighlighting some of the pioneering restaurants throughout the 20th century who brought the community together at the table. The exhibit will also highlight the efforts of community members who fought for the desegregation of Durham’s restaurants as well as entrepreneurs who introduced us to new ethnic cuisines.
We will also be offering a six-part dining series to put the spotlight on some of Durham’s most beloved restaurants and share some unique dishes and recipes from eras of the past. The first event will kick off right after the exhibit opening and we will host one a month through September.
