Museum extends showing of special exhibit

FAYETTEVILLE — The Museum of the Cape Fear has extended the closing date for the special exhibit, Stagville: Black and White. Originally scheduled to close on Sept. 13, the exhibit will now remain at the museum through Dec. 6.

Stagville: Black and White is a collection of contemporary black and white photos of Stagville State Historic Site. At the outbreak of the Civil War it was the largest slave-holding plantation in North Carolina. Descendants of slaves continued to live on the property for many decades. Their testimonials are included in a brief video, which can be seen while touring the exhibit.

The exhibit contains 45 photographs taken by Brenda Scott of Durham. Visitors will notice both historic and artistic themes as they walk through the gallery.

The Museum of the Cape Fear Historical Complex, located on the corner of Bradford and Arsenal avenues in Fayetteville, is open Tuesday through Saturday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., and Sunday from 1 p.m. to 5 p.m.
