New North Carolina city park to honor legacy of formerly enslaved man who forged a path to freedomPlay
Peter Oliver was born into enslavement in the 1700s. He asked the Moravians, a Protestant denomination, to buy him and he went on to live as a spiritual equal and eventually purchase his freedom.
His descendants are part of a group honoring his life and legacy with a new urban park called Peter Oliver Pavilion Gallery.
