Curated by Josh Davis and Jason Perlmutter and designed by Lincoln Hancock and Robin Vuchnich, "Soul Souvenirs" is not only about music. It also examines how the sounds and scene were shaped by the culture of record stores and night clubs, local high schools and churches, and even the civil rights and black power movements of the era.

In short, this exhibit tells the story of Durham's African American community in the 1960s and 1970s.

It is a powerful opportunity to know thyself Durham. Don't miss it.
