Event Details

What does Durham, NC have to do with a 2,700 year-old city in Greece? The business that Washington Duke began on his small farm in 1865 grew into a world-wide industry that dominated life in Durham for most of the city’s history. In the 20th century, working for one of Durham’s tobacco companies might actually mean buying tobacco in Kavala, Greece. Come learn about Durham’s tobacco connection with its newest Sister City, Kavala, Greece.
