The Hayti Community, Durham, North Carolina, ca. 1944
Following the Civil War, African Americans settled in southwest edge of Durham, North Carolina. In the beginning, the area provided labor for Durham’s burgeoning tobacco industry. Over time, Hayti began to thrive and prosper. The community became the home of historic black institutions such as North Carolina Mutual Insurance Company, Lincoln Hospital and North Carolina College for Negroes (which later became North Carolina Central University). Durham was a hub for black enterprise, education and culture and a model for self-reliance and opportunity.

[Photoset: ten colorful photos of queerio19’s time at NC Pride]

These were taken yesterday at NC Pride in Durham, NC. Friends on Tumblr in these photos are Lindsey (first, second, fourth photos), Camilla (fifth photo taking a picture in blue boots), and Ian (in the eighth photo wearing a QT shirt). It started raining about halfway through the parade but we had lots of umbrellas and most people stayed for the whole thing. My first pride parade was awesome!

More pictures to come once I get them from my friend who has an AWESOME camera.
