RISING is a collection of artistic and oral history accounts that present how the North Carolina coastal region has changed over time. This traveling exhibition displays these generational stories throughout the state to help all North Carolinians better adapt for a more resilient future. We are thrilled to be partnering with the African American Cultural Center during the presentation of the Rising NC Exhibit.
