Exhibit: The Story of BBQ in NC
Jan 19 @ 9:00 am – Mar 24 @ 5:00 am
Exhibit: The Story of BBQ in NC @ North Carolina History Center | New Bern | North Carolina | United States

In North Carolina, we love our tasty, regional, home-grown barbecue. From the earliest history of cooking meats over flames and coals to modern methods, North Carolina has a proud barbecue tradition, featured at family and community gatherings across the state. Whether at a backyard grill, a community event, or a traditional wood fire pit at a local restaurant, delicious barbecue can be found in every North Carolina county and in every corner of our history.

The Story of BBQ in North Carolina explores how growing and cultivating hogs emerged in North Carolina. The exhibit also fuels the east versus west debate about sauces and condiments, even as explains that the eastern vinegar base and the western tomato ketchup enhanced versions really are not that different. Visitors will leave hungry so be sure to have a list of local BBQ joints on hand!

Accompanying educational materials will include play kitchens for the youngest visitors and will explore healthy eating options.

The “The Story of BBQ in N.C.” Exhibit will be open to the public January 19, 2019 to March 2019 in the North Carolina History Center.

Renowned Jazz critic Peter Ingram, CVNC Online Arts Journal in North Carolina, begins his jazz review of a recent concert stated, “They (the audience) basked in the “jazz poetry” interpretations that vocalist Willie Atkinson gave to mostly swing era standards.” And ends with… “He certainly inspired the audience to standing ovations at this concert!”

African American Lecture Series: “Music of Black Migrationers”
Feb 21 @ 7:00 pm – 8:30 pm
African American Lecture Series: “Music of Black Migrationers” @ North Carolina History Center | New Bern | North Carolina | United States

Music of Black Migrationers

Music is a mainstay in African American culture. From the banjo to African Griots to work songs that lifted our spirits, music gave us hope and kept us sane since landing in America. This program will entertain and remind us that so much of America’s music is tied to that of migrating African Americans.

PRESENTER: DICK KNIGHT & COMPANY shares music of southerners who escaped the violence and injustices of the South to forge better lives and lasting careers by migrating from the South. These people became the backbone of American Music.  Come enjoy performances of songs by a few of those great artists such as W. C. Hendy’s “Memphis Blues;” Wilbert Harris’s “Going to Kansas City;” Huddie Lead Belly’s “Midnight Special;” Bessie Smith’s “Give Me A Pig Foot and a Bottle of Beer;” Muddy Waters’s “Got my Mojo Working;” Nina Simone’s “Trouble-in-Mind;” and more.
