Wondering, Wandering and Wheeling
Join us and bring a friend for an evening of storytelling, history and conversation in the Northeast End of Wake Forest. We will shuttle three groups to three historic locations: The DuBois Campus, the cemetery, and The Taylor St. Park throughout the evening. At each stop you will have the opportunity to wander with your neighbors and listen to the stories and history from community members and staff at the Wake Forest Museum. We will return to the Alston Massenburg Center for Table conversation about the tour. Spaces are limited.
- Do you have a church bus or van that we can use for the event? We will need you to supply a driver who can shuttle folks from our meeting place at OBBC to three locations (Cemetery/Ailey Young House, DuBois Campus, Taylor Street Park) where attendees will get off the bus/van for about 15 minutes to hear stories from community members about each location as well as information from Museum staff. All vans will rotate one by one to each site and return to the Alston Massenburg Center for Table discussions. Don’t hesitate to ask any questions about details on this!
- Please plan to attend the virtual planning meeting so you can learn more on logistics and the questions for you to lead the Table discussions after the tour. We will meet at 7pm on Thursday September 14. Let me know if you will be able to zoom in. Here is the link to the meeting: https://meet.google.com/cvs-djdg-yts
- Several folks have asked if this event required more “wandering or wheeling?” There will be limited walking as the vans will take folks from place to place. Folks will need to be able to get in and out of a church van/bus and stand for about 15 minutes at each site as the community members and historians share their information. The Table conversations will be held at the end of the tour at the Alston Massenburg Center and handicapped parking is available there as well as the lot at OBBC.
- If you know someone who wants to share a story at one of the sites, let me know! We have some wonderful community members who have stepped up to share memories, stories and history at each site, but we are open to inviting more! Let me know.
