Preservation Durham’s People + Place Speaker Series connects the people of Durham with the importance of our historic, architectural and cultural places and the stories they bring to life.
Join a lively discussion with Debra Taylor Gonzalez-Garcia, President of Friends of Geer Cemetery, as we talk about the history of Geer Cemetery and its creation during Jim Crow. The talk will center around burial inequities from post reconstruction to the early 1900s. We will discuss how we can restore balance and equity in black cemeteries.
