More good news! National Park Service recently announced that the Pauli Murray Center for History and Social Justice is one of the awardees of its National Park Service African American Civil Rights Grant Program! Our partner, the Pauli Murray Project will use a $237,575 grant to rehabilitate the interior of Pauli Murray’s childhood home in Durham, N.C. This vital funding will make it possible for the home of this extraordinary scholar, author, activist, priest and attorney to reopen a modern center for history and social justice in 2020.

"Through the African American Civil Rights Grant Program, we're helping our public and private partners tell unique and powerful stories of the African American struggle for equality in the 20th Century," said National Park Service Acting Director Michael Reynolds.

Other recipients include an initiative to bring preservation training to Birmingham’s A.G. Gaston Motel and a GIS mapping project related to Rosenwald Schools, two other National Treasure campaigns.
