The North Carolina Chapter of the Fulbright Association, through Brown Hat Tours, is offering a group walking tour of Durham’s history and culture at 10:30 AM on Saturday March 28. The narrated tour will begin adjacent to the Durham Farmer’s Market on Foster Street with a visit to murals and other sites in and around downtown depicting Durham’s civil rights and tobacco history and other points of interest, including Central Park, Durham Athletic Park, Motorco, urban axes, and arcades. The tour will last about 75 minutes, followed by lunch at a nearby restaurant. Attendees may enjoy arriving prior to the tour to visit the Durham Farmer’s Market, which opens at 10 AM.
