After almost 3 years of operating out of the Snow Building in the heart of downtown Durham, we’ve outgrown our space there and it’s time to say goodbye.
We’re very excited to announce that beginning in May, our new home will be the Hayti Heritage Center on Fayetteville Street!
Although we’ve enjoyed our time building the center in the three room office of suite 408 in the Snow Building, we’re looking forward to joining the vibrant history and community that the Hayti Center embodies. We feel that this will be a better fit for us, the work we do, and the community we seek to be a part of and help to build.
Housed in the historic St. Joseph AME Church on Fayetteville Street, the Hayti Heritage Center is an important political, social, and cultural institution in Durham. The Durham Solidarity Center will be located on the ground floor of the three story building. We’ll let you all know once we’ve completed our move so you can come by and check out the new space!
Application Deadline: May 24th
