In 1960, Terry Sanford decided to run for Governor. He announced his candidacy in front of the Market House in Fayetteville. At that point in time, Fayetteville was a strategic spot for a state-wide political launch.
More importantly, at that time, you could be a champion of civil rights and still use the Market House as a back drop.
There’s one image that’s been on this website from the beginning. It shows a man under the Market House, looking out over Fayetteville. I think it sums up what I’ve been trying to do.
That picture is staying.
Some pieces of the past need to be remembered.
