Hands-on history maps to identify the exhibits will be available in the Barber Junction Depot, where Jim Crow laws separating the races were in effect; the Brockway Fire Truck that belonged to the all-black Quick Step Hook and Ladder Company; and the exhibit on Capt. Bill Wilkerson, retired Piedmont Airlines and US Airways pilot.
