WINTON – The C.S. Brown Regional Cultural Arts Center and Museum Board of Directors will host the 138th Founder’s Day observance at 3 p.m. on Sunday, March 24 at the Cultural Arts Center on Main Street in Winton.

The speaker for the occasion will be Willie Riddick, a 1957 graduate of C.S. Brown High School. He is originally from Como, but presently resides in Raleigh.

The book, “The Best of Enemies: Race and Redemption in the New South,” by Osha Gray Davidson, is based on Riddick’s 1971 experiences in Durham in bringing together a racially divided city to talk about integrating schools.

Music at the Founder’s Day celebration will be provided Orlando Reid.
