What to Do and See Downtown This Week!

Opening Reception: "I AM A MAN"

Adjacent to Downtown Chapel Hill, the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill offers countless cultural and educational opportunities for the community - including visual art, dance, music, lectures and more!

On Friday, February 8th, the The Center for the Study of the American South hosts an opening reception for “I AM A MAN” - a collection of Civil Rights photographs taken between 1960 and 1970. An inter-institutional team of researchers led by Professor Emeritus Bill Ferris collected these photographs for a recent exhibit at the Pavillon Populaire in Montpellier, France.
