Back by popular demand! Red, White & Black Walking Tour

Jackson and Thorpe

Dr. Walter Jackson and Ms. Toni Thorpe smile after the first RW&B tour.

We will offer the ever-popular Red, White & Black Walking tour again this fall:

Thursday, November 8 at 4:00 p.m.
The tour will begin on the quad side of Holladay Hall

Join us to learn about the spaces and places on NC State’s campus that have had significant impact on the lives and experiences of African American students and the larger community. Dr. Walter Jackson, NC State associate professor of history, and Ms. Toni Thorpe, program coordinator at NC State’s African American Cultural Center, will lead the tour. The walking tour will conclude with refreshments and reflection at the Witherspoon Student Center. Please wear comfortable walking shoes.

Free and open to the public. For more information, contact Marian Fragola at 919-513-3481 or marian_fragola@ncsu.edu.

The Red, White & Black tour is presented by the NCSU Libraries in collaboration with the African American Cultural Center. If you are unable to join us, we encourage you to try out the Red, White & Black mobile web app that allows users to employ their smart phones and other mobile devices to embark on a self-guided walking tour that highlights the rich history of African Americans at NC State (www.lib.ncsu.edu/m/exhibits/redwhiteblack).
