The Pauli Murray Center for History and Social Justice celebrated an Open House last weekend and received a bit of beautification from the Forest Hills Garden Club of Durham.

Members of the garden club provided potted plants which were used to decorate the front porch, interior of the home and outside in a hospitality tent. The Forest Hills Garden Club was listed as a contributor to the event.

The Pauli Murray project has created an online exhibit detailing key events in Murray’s life, and in a hallmark achievement earlier this year, Murray’s childhood home was designated a National Historic Landmark and received a $238,000 federal grant to open to the public in 2020.
