Museum’s Black History Exhibit Opens Saturday

The Wayne County Museum’s annual Black History exhibit will open on Saturday, February 5. This year the show is entitled “Culture & Community”, and it explores the historic Black neighborhoods of Goldsboro and Mount Olive.  The show will focus on the churches, schools, businesses, and community leaders that made up the heart & soul of these communities during segregation. The museum will also examine the changes that these areas underwent post-segregation.

The exhibit will last until the end of April, and many special events are planned during those 3 months. 

The Wayne County Museum is very excited to begin offering a new Black History walking tour of the historic Little Washington neighborhood beginning on the last Saturday of every month.
The first walk will begin on Saturday, February 26.

The museum’s free monthly general history walking tour of Goldsboro and downtown will resume on Saturday, February 5th at 10:30 am (Weather permitting). 
The tours meet as usual in the lobby of the museum at 116 N William Street and last approximately 90 minutes. Wear comfy shoes and bundle up!
