DURHAM MAIN LIBRARY--In the early '90s, Paul Orbitz spent the majority of his time conducting over 1,000 personal interviews with people who lived, breathed and suffered from segregation in North Carolina, doing research for the Duke-based project "Behind the Veil." Over a decade later, Orbitz has returned to continue his research on the history of segregation, penning a chapter for the sequel to Remembering Jim Crow, his first collaborative documentation on the effect of Jim Crow laws in the rural South. Hear him speak at 7:30 p.m for free. --Kathy Justice
