Triad Cultural Arts, The City of Winston-Salem, and The Winston-Salem Foundation are proud to present the exhibit, Rooted in Race: A Community’s Journey to Integration, which will be on view at the historic Union Station, 300 S Martin Luther King Jr Dr. in Winston-Salem, October 29th - November 12th
Rooted in Race began as a virtual exhibit, a collaboration among TCA and the Foundation to provide the community with an interactive way to reflect on the human impact of school desegregation and efforts to improve school quality in Winston-Salem. Rooted in Race utilizes historical artifacts as well as oral histories from current and former Winston-Salem/Forsyth County Schools students and staff to provide a view along a historical path of efforts to deny and impede equality as well as initiatives to create greater equity in education.
The in-person exhibit will open on Saturday, October 29 from 11am to 2pm and will include remarks from WS/FC School Superintendent Tricia McManus and LaTida Smith, president of The Winston-Salem Foundation as well as opportunities to experience the interactive exhibit, meet the interviewees, reflect, and take action. Rooted in Race is open to the public at no cost.
The exhibit is open only at the listed hours for self guided individual tours. Guided tours are available to school groups/organizations. Tours will last about an hour.
