The Power of Place: Interpreting a Freedom House

Planning for a historical interpretation of the home of civil rights activist Golden Frinks (1920–2004) in Edenton, North Carolina.

The Edenton State Historic Site, part of the NC Department of Natural and Cultural Resources, seeks a $74,415.00 Public Humanities planning grant to develop a thorough approach for a successful interpretive project that discusses the Civil Rights Movement at the home of activist Golden Frinks (1920-2004) in Edenton, North Carolina. The resulting exhibition plan will have multiple layers of diverse audiences, careful and respectful attention to detail, and using a variety of exhibition formats blended with a traditional furnishing plan featuring artifacts, images, and documents from Frinks’ life and work. We are planning to host several community listening sessions to seek input and information from veterans of the Civil Rights Movement as well as the resident community to create a plan to interpret the house in the most sensitive, forthright, and honest way possible. Project work will include consultation with an exhibit design firm and staff training.
