Royal Ice Cream Sit-In Sign Dedication
Join us at the Museum of Durham History (500 W. Main St.) on Wednesday, June 23rd, at 6PM as we honor the legacy of the brave participants in the Royal Ice Cream Sit-in. Sit-in participants will be very special guests to share their stories. On the 64th anniversary of the sit-in that sought the integration for African American customers, MoDH will dedicate its recently installed Royal Ice Cream sign, generously sponsored by board member Alice Sharpe in honor of her parents.
This is one of two known Royal Ice Cream signs. The neon sign that hung at the entrance of the Royal Ice Cream parlor now has a home in Provident1898.
