Black History Month Retrospective

Welcome to a Virtual Exhibition Celebrating Black History Month as the Burke County Branch of the NAACP aims to inform and celebrate our local black history makers, past and present.

CLICK HERE for a display highlighting history-makers of the Morganton Community who have paved the way, opened doors, or exemplified African- American heritage.

The Burke Arts Council is grateful to the NAACP for sharing the stories and to Laurie Johnston, NC Room Curator of the Burke County Public Library.
