Apex Black History: Stories Still With Us Today

Historical Black Communities of NC

About This Event

In the years before the Civil War, half of the inhabitants of southwestern Wake County were enslaved Africans or Free Persons of Color (FPOCs). Their stories still speak to us today. Get a window into their world when local actors present snippets from Warren Holleman’s new play, “Forged in Fire: The Story of Apex,” and students from Middle Creek High School retell these stories through art, poetry, and music.
