Durham’s Ninth Street is the all-grown-up version of a college town thoroughfare. Situated between Duke University’s East and West campuses, charming Ninth Street is full of locally owned boutiques, restaurants, and coffee shops.
In the early twentieth century, Parrish Street in Durham was a hub of African-American business activity that gained national recognition. The four-block district was known as “Black Wall Street,” and received praise from national leaders W. E. B. DuBois and Booker T. Washington.
