Be Connected Durham & Beyond proudly announces the unveiling of the Divine Nine Legacy Memoir exhibition on Friday, April 19th, from 6pm-9pm.


Hosted in the Lyda Moore Merrick Gallery at the Hayti Heritage Center, 804 Old Fayetteville Street Durham NC, this exhibition is created, curated, and produced by Cameron Elyse Productions, and is presented by Be Connected Durham’s Fayetteville Street Corridor Fellows Project.


The Divine Nine Legacy Memoir delves deep into the history of the National Panhellenic Council (NPHC) or “Divine Nine,” a collective of nine Greek Letter organizations founded on May 10th, 1930. These organizations were born out of the necessity to provide a voice for Black American students within the collegiate space.


United by principles of service, community, brotherhood, and sisterhood, the Divine Nine work collectively to uplift society through acts of service to underserved areas across the nation.


Through this exhibition, attendees will connect with four generations of NPHC members, spanning from Baby Boomers to Gen-Z. Personal memoirs and experiences post-initiation will be highlighted, shedding light on the profound impact of Divine Nine Greek organizations on the local communities of Durham, Raleigh, and Chapel Hill.
