Via UNC News Service:

For 37 years, the Rogers Road community in Chapel Hill has been at the center of a public  debate about the impact of the Orange County Landfill, which borders the neighborhood.

An exhibit opening June 12 at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill will tell a deeper story, uncovering more than two centuries of the community’s history.
