COMMUNITY JOURNAL PROJECT

How to Get Involved

Celebrate the women who changed Chapel Hill by submitting a page into a community journal. Submissions will be displayed online at chapelhillhistory.org. We will also create a physical journal that we will share with the women whose stories are at the heart of this exhibit.

Get Creative


Create, write, draw, or paint your response to one of the following reflective prompts:


Prompt 1

If you could talk with an ancestor or important woman from your past, what would you say?

Prompt 2

Imagine a world where BIPOC (Black, Indigenous, and People of Color) thrive. Describe it.

Prompt 3

What change are you inspired to make after learning from the women of "I Was Still Singing"?


  • You can write and draw your responses by hand or digitally.
  • Written responses can be of any language.
  • Submitted pages must fit within 10" x 10."
  • Please include a note with your name, address, email or phone number, and selected prompt with each submission.
  • If you do not want your name included on public journal pages, let us know that. Your contact information will not be made public.
  • Questions? Send an email to Molly Luby: mluby@townofchapelhill.org

Any disrespectful pages submitted will not be added to the community journal.
