Henna: The Unknown History

July 19 @ 4:00 pm - 8:00 pm

An Interactive Exhibit

Happy Birthday Durham!! And it comes as no surprise that we along with Durham 150 are celebrating with henna! Henna: The Unknown History is an interactive exhibit. This exhibit is a photography series capturing Durham residents enjoying henna. In Durham, henna has become a festival staple and a cultural icon used to celebrate weddings, birthdays, etc. About our city henna can be found in nail salons, hair salons, & tattoo parlors. The fact that henna thrives in our city conveys the global village of Durham as well as Durhams commitment to social justice. Henna artist Shemora Sheikh will conduct a lecture on the roots and little known facts of Henna. There will be DIY Henna Stations. Henna is an herbal temporary tattoo used for dying hair, eyebrows, as well as body art.
