Traces of Places

Tryon Palace’s African American Lecture Series presents a virtual program by Dr. Erroll L. Royal on his most recent book, Traces of Places and Faces of African Americans from the New Bern Community, on Thursday, February 17, 7 – 8 PM.

The presentation will highlight on some of the past and present African Americans from the New Bern community who have made or continue to make significant contributions to the city, the surrounding areas, and nationwide.  His stories serve to remember the legacies of these African Americans as their lives will have lasting impact on the lives of many for generations to come.  In his book, he also recognizes that there are many more great individuals not mentioned who have impacted the lives of New Bernians and others in a special way. He is currently working on a sequel to Traces of Places and Faces of Americans to remember others who were not mentioned in the first book.
