Julian Abele

     Not many people know that Duke Chapel was designed by a black man, Julian Abele.

Here is a link to an article that appeared in 2005 in the Smithsonian.

The article is titled "Out of the Shadows" and shows how Abele is finally getting recognition.

Unfortunately, due to the Jim Crow South, he was never able to see his finished work, completed in the 1930's.
