You are also invited to add to the understanding of our community’s rich African- American heritage by sharing your family photographs, small memorabilia, and stories about growing up in Cary. Trained staff and volunteers will be on hand to record your stories and scan photos. There will also be resources on how to care for and protect your family treasures.
