Race & Space: The Athletic Department

These locations are where North Carolina’s States first black athletes began to make their presence known on campus to both fellow students and alumni. These spaces were also important in helping to break down the walls of resistance to integration and in opening opportunities for future students both athletes and non-athletes. They were also shared sites of integration for all citizens of Raleigh.

This exhibit is part of a collaborative project. To learn more, check out: The Student Body, The Workplace, and The Community.
