There was a special birthday celebration for one of Durham’s long-time residents Tuesday.
Lucille Ervin turned 108 years old. About 30 people gathered on the lawn of St. Mark AME Zion Church to wish her well and sing "Happy Birthday".
Ervin moved to North Carolina from South Carolina 80 years ago. And she’s been here ever since. She was born in Charleston and raised by an Aunt and Uncle who lived on land handed down by their slave owners, according to Dorothy Fuller, Ervin's cousin.
