Delta Arts Center will present “Freedom Day: Celebrating the Legacy of Nelson Mandela” 3-5 p.m. today, Feb. 10, at 2611 New Walkertown Road.

Among the revelations in the exhibition: A Forsyth County resident owns signs believed to have hung at the Winston-Salem Woolworth store. The history-changing Woolworth lunch counter sit-in movement of the 1960s had roots in Winston-Salem.

Larry Womble, former N.C. State Representative and sit-in participant, will share personal memories of the movement.

Other articipants include Radical Reverence, hip-hop youth praise team from St. Paul Church, and Authoring Action’s writings on “Resilience.”

Freedom Day celebrates the anniversary of Nelson Mandela’s release from prison.
