Research & Writing
Bankers Plaza Research Project, City of Wilson, 2020
Conducted research for a potential outdoor exhibit about the history of banking in Wilson, North Carolina. Traced the history of banking from the 1870s through the present including the origins of BB&T (Truist) in Wilson, its connections to the growing tobacco economy, and the founding of one of few black-owned banks in the segregated Jim Crow south, as well as the impact of the Great Depression. Wrote a full report and drafted exhibit verbiage. Sourced historic images for inclusion in possible exhibit.
