Personally, I thought the coolest spot on the tour was the big mural commemorating many of the civil rights activists in Durham.
Durham actually had some of the first sit-ins, even before the widely recognized Greensboro sit-ins. This mural not only includes references to boycotts, peaceful protests, and other tactics, but it also pays homage to several important figures. Ellis, who are remembered for their roles in efforts to desegregate local schools, can be seen on the far left side. The last stop of our tour was at the Carolina Theater. The Carolina Theater was open to blacks and whites, but they were forced to sit in separate areas and use separate box offices.

We climbed up the 97 stairs that African-Americans would have had to use, and saw the crammed balcony section they had to watch from. It was really cool to see our city in a new way on this walking tour.

Exploring Durham’s history
You won't be disappointed! About 60 mins drive from Durham.
A full day in Durham City centre with the Castle and Cathedral will not disappoint,but it's very hilly so bring some stout shoes.. Bowes museum and Teesdale in general; Killhope Lead mining centre and Weardale in general.
