Outer Banks History Center Exhibit

Today marks the eve of the 2006 hurricane season. What better time to mark a new exhibit at North Carolina’s Outer Banks, a sliver of land that has been shaped by storms and cultures. This Thursday, the Outer Banks History Center will recognize little known contributions of African-Americans to the region with the unveiling of a new exhibit entitled, “Freedom’s Voice: Celebrating the Black Experience on the Outer Banks,” open until 31 December.

Freedom’s Voice highlights significant events in history on the Outer Banks such as the Freedmen’s Colony on Roanoke Island where thousands of freed and runaway slaves built a self-sustaining community during the Civil War, the all-black Pea Island U.S. Lifesaving Service station and the contributions of black fishermen and oystermen to the local maritime industry. The exhibit also draws from much of Dr. Walt Wolfram’s linguistic research to better understand the largely undocumented specifics of black history in the region.
