The childhood home of a renowned human rights leader is about to get a major face-lift in southwest Durham.
Pauli Murray was an attorney, Civil Rights activist and the first African American female Episcopal priest. The house her grandfather built in the 1890s sits way off Carroll Street in Durham’s West End. Sarah Bingham was one of several people to walk through the two-story house yesterday. She says it’s in pretty good shape.
Sarah Bingham: "I see possibilities everywhere."
Inge: "It looks kind of fragile though."
