RALEIGH - A new exhibit at the N.C. Museum of History chronicles the life of the Rev. Billy Graham in time to celebrate a milestone.
The exhibit, "North Carolina's Favorite Son: Billy Graham and His Remarkable Journey of Faith," opens on Friday in Raleigh, one day before Graham celebrates his 97th birthday.
The 5,000-square-foot exhibit explores his life as well as a ministry that spanned seven decades. It includes personal memorabilia, interactive displays, and multimedia that help bring Graham's story to life.
In addition, the exhibit also provides glimpses into Graham's family life, his leadership and influence in the Cold War and in the battle against segregation.
Also included in the exhibit is a look at each of Graham's 12 crusades in North Carolina and other appearances in the U.S. and overseas.
