This is a page that is long time coming for Chowan Discovery. We produced four history videos for Washington, DC audiences as a way to develop video and grant writing skills for our Winton Triangle focus. As with our other offerings, you can expect more coming.
The C.S. Brown Auditorium Story: One of the largest Rosenwald School buildings, the C.S. Brown Auditorium has been serving the Hertford County, NC community since 1926 as a school facility, and since 1986, a cultural arts center and museum. It is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. The video tells of the C.S. Brown School's background, its birth and the long service of its auditorium. Made in coordination with the C.S. Brown Cultural Arts Center and Museum, this production is funded by the National Trust for Historic Preservation and Chowan Discovery Group.
Exhibit Talk - People, Buildings and Sites of the Winton Triangle: “Building a Mixed Race Community – People, Buildings and Sites of the Winton Triangle”. Marvin gives a tour of Chowan Discovery’s largest production. Spanning from 1851 to 1970, this 30-panel exhibit covers the Winton Triangle’s role in family, worship, education, community, Civil Rights politics, war, business, agriculture, and recreation. This 3-panel exhibit is funded by North Carolina Humanities and Chowan Discovery.
A USCT Story from Cofield, NC:
Marvin learns that a familiar grave and beloved house on his family farm once belonged to a United States Colored Troop soldier who served in Virginia and also in Texas during the time of Juneteenth. Originally produced by Chowan Discovery for the Alliance to Preserve Civil War Defenses of Washington, D.C.
