Farr, sixty-three, was picked by Trump to become a federal district judge in the Eastern District of North Carolina this year. In Farr's response to questions from Feinstein, he said he had didn't learn in advance of the more than one hundred thousand postcards the late Senator Jesse Helms's U.S. Senate campaign sent to primarily to African-American voters in 1990, insinuating that they would be arrested if they voted.…

The lawsuit, filed in October 2016, claimed that then-attorney general Roy Cooper had diverted money from public schools to environmental projects in conflict with state law.

  • Urban Ministries and PictureDURM team up for photo projectUrban Ministries and PictureDURM team up for photo project

      In a changing Durham, perspective is key. While recent development throughout the city has allowed many residents to prosper, there are those whose voices have been marginalized in this growing metropolis, fighting to stay on their feet as gentrification and other urban renewal projects take effect. The Mark, one of many new luxury apartment complexes with rooms as high as $2000 a month. (Staff photo by Justin Laidlaw) Urban Ministries of Durham and PictureDURM have partnered for a second time to uplift those marginalized voices. The two organizations worked together to provide cameras for participants in the UMD workforce development program and incentivized them to venture into downtown Durham (within two miles of UMD) to document their journey. Participants received two bus passes, donated by GoTriangle, upon first receiving their cameras, and earned a $5 Walmart gift card upon return of the cameras once pictures were taken. Sixteen people took part in the project. Each photographer was presented with a printed set of their photos, one of which was framed as a keepsake. “It has been really powerful to get cameras in the hands of Urban Ministries residents and let them share their story for themselves rather than having someone else tell it for them,” said Meredith Martindale, longtime Durham resident and founder of PictureDurm.com, a website created to curate photographs online and answer questions about the city’s growth and whether “we are keeping what makes Durham, Durham.” Since the website’s creation, over 12,000 photographs have been curated using the hashtag #picturedurm on social media or submitted via email. Many of the photos are of life in Durham’s recognizable areas like American Tobacco Campus or Duke University, highlighting the growth taking shape across town. In contrast, the outskirts of downtown near Urban Ministries tell a different story, one that Martindale hopes is illuminated by her partnership with UMD. “It has given them dignity, and it’s also opened the eyes of a lot of Durham residents, too. I’d call it a win-win,” said Martindale. Even within the walls of Urban Ministries, the narrative about Durham’s evolving landscape is up for debate. “I took photos of things that bothered me or things that I can’t have,” said Tyrone Mercer, an associate with the workforce development program. His photograph subjects varied from the jailhouse within eyeshot of the facility, to the lawn signs that read “rent starting at $1300” outside The Mark, a new apartment complex only a couple blocks from UMD. “They won’t let me in there,” said Mercer begrudgingly as he continues to flip through his photographs. Mercer illustrates a story familiar to many citizens in Durham. As growth continues, so does the rise in cost of living, pricing residents out of new homes and apartment complexes similar to The Mark. Not everyone sees the change as a negative. Ikeyia Burton is a Durham resident who recently graduated from the workforce development program at UMD. Her photographs mostly highlight construction projects including Durham County library and One City Center. As she sifts through her photographs, her face illuminates while she shares the stories in the moments she has captured. “My family used to work at Golden Belt back in the day,” she said enthusiastically. Burton plans to continue her education and pursue a degree in fashion and marketing at the Arts Institute of Raleigh-Durham after she leaves UMD. “I went through a little trials and tribulations but I can see the light now.”

  • How Scouting is changing in the Durham communityHow Scouting is changing in the Durham community

      The Boy Scouts of America is known for being an organization founded on tradition and a strong sense of patriotism. But in the face of a changing cultural and political climate, the organization is doing its best to reach out to new members without changing its core values. They have had a strong presence in Durham, which is in the BSA Mawat District, for decades. Marketing and Activities Director Desmond Miller says that the organization is working especially hard to reach potential Boy Scouts in places that were previously hard to serve. “We’re allowing scouting to grow and definitely trying to get scouting into the inner parts of the cities that we cover and some of the rural areas that we cover,” Miller said. Desmond Miller presents a recognition to Phi Beta Sigma Fraternity at the Salvation Army Boys & Girls Club. (Photo courtesy of Desmond Miller) As of 2015, only four percent of Boy Scouts graduated to Eagle Scouts, the highest honor a scout can achieve. And of that four percent, only four percent were boys of color, according to scout official Lonce Scott. Miller got involved with BSA while living in Charlotte and became passionate about getting boys of color involved with the scouts. “I started working with [a BSA] organization in Charlotte, North Carolina. I was volunteering with a learn to swim program that I started. One of the professional scouters in Charlotte, I started volunteering for him,” Miller recounted. “He wanted to make sure that some some of our African American boys to learn how to swim. So, being a swim instructor and having a background in swimming, it was a passion of mine. So, I jumped at the opportunity to teach these young people how to swim.” Though many of the Boy Scouts come from different ethnic and cultural backgrounds, Miller assured that he makes sure every scout has the same meaningful experience. “It’s a universal experience for everyone,” Miller said. “We just want to make sure that every young person has an opportunity to live a moral, ethical life. That they’re making good decisions and good choices.” One aspect of this experience, is the merit badge system. Miller confirmed that there are over 140 different merit badges that Boy Scouts receive for completing introductory level activities for different skills, including life-saving, woodworking, communication, and citizenship on a local and national level. The Mawat Dristrict has even started giving out badges for achievements in STEM fields. The scouts are taught different skills through curriculum courses with their troops and then apply what they’ve learned in the community through volunteer work. “We do a lot of community clean-ups and community food drives. The sky is the limit. We even help with disaster relief,” Miller said with a smile. “Scouting has been around since 1910. If you think about all the different tragedies that this country has gone through, scouting has been a part of food drives, clothes drives [that helped the nation]. During World War 1, scouts would pick up different metals to make sure that if our military needed something to be made, they could have supplies to do so. Anything that the country needs and the scouts can be a part of, we’re a part of.” One of the challenges that inner city parents face when enrolling their children in Boy Scouts is the cost. But Miller says that families can register for only $24 a year and that payment plans can be made to fit anyone’s situation. “If any families that may have financial hardships they can contact our local scouting office. That’s why we do fundraisers, that’s why we sell popcorn, that’s why we sell camp cards, that’s why we write grants.” Miller believes that the sacrifices that some families make are worth the results that they’ll get. “For me, scouting means a lifelong opportunity to grow, as an individual, as a community leader, as a friend. Even just being mentor to someone’s child allows me to grow every day. I’m learning something new every single day.  I’m connecting with new people and meeting people every single day. I’m having opportunities to grow socially, emotionally, and spiritually. I’m growing physically, in terms of being aware of my environment and how to take care of my environment.” Miller says that if there’s one thing people should know about the scouts, it’s that they are always looking for help. “We’re building and recruiting our membership and always getting more young people involved in scouting. If you have a passion for working with young people, we need you. If you have a passion for raising money and helping a nonprofits organization grow. If you a passion for making the community better. We’re always looking for people like that.” You can connect with Miller and other Durham Boy Scout officials at the official Mawat District website http://www.durhamscouts.org/home Weblinks: http://scoutingwire.org/annual-report-2016/ https://beascout.scouting.org/ http://www.ocscouts.org/tesanc/

  • DCRC teaches teens about dating violenceDCRC teaches teens about dating violence

      “Just because we don’t like it and don’t talk about it, doesn’t mean it’s going to go away.” These are the blunt yet all too truthful words of Auriela Sands Belle, the Executive Director for the Durham Crisis Response Center in Durham, North Carolina. This quote came during a domestic violence forum held at the Monument of Faith Church of God in Durham that also took a closer look at the unhealthy level of abuse that occurs in teenager relationships. April-Autumn Jenkins & Dawn Wilson lead a hypothetical scenario activity (Staff photo by Keynari Brown) This workshop is just one of the many that the DCRC can offer victims of domestic violence, sexual abuse, etc., especially in a time when sexual abuse is heavily covered by the media. DCRC provides services to any individual 13 years and older who has been affected by rape or sexual violence. It does not matter when the sexual assault or abuse occurred. “We work as a team,” said Shirrell Thomas, Community Outreach Coordinator, about how the workshops are planned. “We work as a team that consists of DCRC staff, local entities, allied professionals and others considered community leaders.” “In light of much that is going on regarding sexual violence and other forms of intimate partner violence, this workshop is timely,” said Belle. “We are focusing on our youth, but quite frankly, anyone engaged in intimate relationships. No one is immune.” As the attendants of the event watched, Shereka Dunston, Youth Prevention Educator, flipped through the PowerPoint presentation of Dating Abuse: Tools for Talking to Teens, and were surprised by the statistics which became the focus of their conversation regarding the wellbeing of children. One in three adolescents is a victim of physical, sexual, emotional, or verbal abuse from a dating partner. Half of teenagers in relationships report being controlled, pressured, or threatened in a relationship. “And this is just the stuff that actually gets reported,” said Dunston. “Most of it either gets ignored or swept under the rug.” And it does get ignored quite often. Less than one-third of all parents actually hold a conversation with their children about dating abuse. Nearly two-thirds of those parents that have teenagers in relationships don’t even think their children are at risk of teen dating violence. “It’s really nothing but a vicious cycle,” stated Dunston through the shaking of her head. “Teens in abusive relationships are more likely to become abusers when they are adults.” To grasp a clear definition of what exactly dating abuse is, Dunston and Belle both defined it as a pattern of actual or threatened acts of physical, sexual, emotional, and/or spiritual abuse towards a partner. “Abuse is nothing but a pattern,” Belle said stately. “And it will continue and escalate.”

  • If you thought Joe Bushfan was done serving the community – think againIf you thought Joe Bushfan was done serving the community – think again

    “My dream was just to help folks less fortunate than myself,” Durham resident and catalyst Joe Bushfan said when talking about his efforts in his community. While Bushfan has been around Durham for a while now, he has no plan on stopping his efforts to help others. In 2020, he hopes to open a diner up for people to enjoy. Bushfan said he plans to have his diner modeled after an old Woolworth’s Cafe. If you are not familiar, these old restaurants had a setup in which customers could watch their food being prepared. This allowed them to see exactly what they were getting and they would know it was of high quality. Bushfan wants his customers to be able to know what they are getting. He also mentioned that he wants to serve foods of higher quality but still in an affordable manner. Thickness of bacon was a high point in this conversation. If somehow you are not yet familiar with Joseph Bushfan, these are a few things you should know. He grew up in Roxbury, Boston alongside his six older brothers and three older sisters. He grew up near Bobby Brown, for whom he then began working as a bodyguard for and developed that into a 22 year long career. Bushfan went on to work with other celebrities such as Jay-Z, Earth, Wind & Fire, Eminem and more. After moving to North Carolina in 2004, Bushfan started to realize that his area in Durham was reminding him of his home in Boston; it seemed a desperate neighborhood so he wanted to make a difference. Bushfan invested $1,500 into a hot dog cart and began selling hot dogs on what he saw was the worst corner in the neighborhood, the corner of Angier Avenue and Driver Street. “People thought I was crazy,” Bushfan said. He then went on to get one building, but ended up having three buildings and a parking lot to his name. Bushfan believes that his food truck, comedy club, and the commissary bring peace and harmony to the area. He said food and entertainment allow people to “forget about the outside” and all of the troubling issues in today’s society. Bushfan has been quite successful in his goal of helping others. Whether it is opening his doors to a fellow neighbor or providing a job to someone in need, he has given hope to the area. He has certainly had these successes, but he has also faced challenges. There are always people that oppose ideas, and he has dealt with a few along the way. Sometimes things have made Bushfan want to quit, but he was able to settle himself by listening to the positive messages in the music of Earth, Wind & Fire. He also finds comfort in his faith; Bushfan regularly attends church to grow his spirituality and uses that in his business. Thanks in part to Bushfan’s efforts, this push for change has had a domino effect in the community– and the area is booming now. “God has blessed me,” Bushfan said. Bushfan mentioned many of his mentors when he talked about getting to where he is now. Dan Hill and Ben Feldman were just two names on the long list of influential and helpful people in his life. For the future, Durham residents can expect the possible opening of Joe’s diner as well as Fridays featuring a weekly fish fry out of Bushfan’s trailer. Reopening the diner will provide jobs in the area and will be yet another place for fellowship and friendliness. It will be a place for people to gather and enjoy each other’s company, he said, while enjoying a great meal. Although Bushfan has already touched the lives of so many people in the community, he finds it exciting to think about what he will do next and how that will further benefit the area.

  • Chef Educator, cooking with natureChef Educator, cooking with nature

    Raise your hand if you have eaten sweet potato leaves before. Sumi Dutta’s request was met with silent, but inquisitive stares. SEEDS, located at 706 Gilbert St., is a nonprofit garden that imparts the importance and knowledge of co-existing with nature through the growing, cooking and sharing of food. SEEDlings is SEEDS’ after-school enrichment program. Dutta, 27, of Durham, was recently hired this September as the Chef Educator for SEEDlings.   Sumi Dutta answers Sonata Robinson’s questions about the dish (Staff photo by Vanessa Luo). Dutta had previously worked for SEEDlings during the summer of 2012. She volunteered for the summer camp cooking classes. Despite her trajectory to her current position, Dutta didn’t learn to cook until she was 21. Between her time working at SEEDS, she took on a number of jobs, such as working at an affordable housing nonprofit in New Orleans, got her master’s degree in Gender and Sexuality studies and taught feminist cooking classes for queer people of color in Atlanta. After returning to Durham, she found the newly established Chef Educator opening and applied for it without hesitation. As a Chef Educator, Dutta plans her cooking lessons for the students, who range from first graders to fifth graders, around the availability of fruit, vegetables and herbs from SEEDS’ two-acre urban garden. Dutta also accounts for a variety of factors when choosing recipes. Besides food allergies, there’s a time constraint as the students become easily distracted over time. As a result, Dutta typically chooses recipes that will be ready in less than an hour or she will prep ahead of time. Due to the changing seasons, many vegetables and fruits that were plentiful during spring and summer will soon be out of season. And as last week’s theme was seasonality, Dutta decided to cook using sweet potato leaves to teach the students about seasonality. Sumi Dutta preparing to roast the sweet potatoes. (Staff photo by Vanessa Luo). Sweet potatoes are available year-round and are especially plentiful from late October to December. On the other hand, many of the vegetables and fruits that the students tended to, such as blueberries, are only available during certain seasons. This week’s recipe was sautéed sweet potato with green onions and crumbled feta. As Dutta began to prep for the recipe by cutting and seasoning the sweet potato, the students trickled in one-by-one. Sniffing, some commented, “Is that coconut?” and “It smells like coconut milk.” In comparison to their peers, the students at SEEDlings are much more knowledgeable about plants. Most of them can identify the plants in the SEEDS garden. One of the reasons Dutta loves her job is because working at SEEDS allows her to have a relationship with the plants – the food she cooks with. She also loves that she can “geek out” about herbs and plants. Dutta said one of the coolest plants she has ever seen was a cinnamon tree. Harvesting onions, Sumi Dutta is nearly finished with meal prep. (Staff photo by Vanessa Luo). “It was like meeting an ancestor,” Dutta recalled her awe at seeing the tree for the first time. “You’re the spice I use in all of the things I cook. I see you in all these different forms, but I never saw the source.” One of the children’s favorite activities is to help Dutta prep and cook the recipes. Dutta enlisted the students’ help last week in picking sweet potato leaves. In a friendly competition, not only did the students learn to identify sweet potato leaves, but also that the green ones are better fit for consumption. A student even unburied a sweet potato in the process. Afterwards, the students also helped Dutta cook the meal. After Dutta distributed the food to the students, she said again, “Raise your hand if you have eaten sweet potato leaves before.” This time, every hand shot up into the air. Dutta writes down her recipes for the students’ families as many students want to make the recipes at home, too. Dutta said she loves her job is because she can help connect the students with nature. On some days, the SEEDlings students love to pick lemon balm from the garden to drink with tea. “Being able to teach here,” she said. “I think that feels right to me.”   From left to right, Joshua Di Bona, Adrian Platt, Ashley Brook Cruz Aragon and Sonata Robinson listen attentively as Sumi Dutta explains how to cook the dish.

  • Behind the music: the faces of KidznotesBehind the music: the faces of Kidznotes

    Over the years, the VOICE has told the stories of Kidznotes’ students and events. But, in looking back, there’s some stories that we haven’t shared yet. Since its start in 2010, Kidznotes has boasted influential and talented instructors and volunteers who have had a desire to make a difference through music. With that in mind, the VOICE sat down with two instructors who are new to the program and one volunteer who has been making an impact in students’ lives for years.   Qualia Holder-Cozart How long she’s been with Kidznotes: She’s served as a Kidznotes choir conductor since this August, but has volunteered since summer 2016. Where she’s from: Southwest Durham How she got here: Holder-Cozart got her start singing around the house as a child. She remembers writing a song when she was eight years-old and having her parents give it a listen. From there, her parents realized their daughter’s musical talent and encouraged her to pursue it. After meeting Kidznotes’ Rashad Hayward during a performance at the DPAC two years ago and crossing paths again at NCCU, Holder-Cozart developed an interest in the program, leading her to volunteer for two summers and apply for the job this year. Planning the dream: She’s applied to transfer from NCCU to an online program provided through her dream school, the Berklee College of Music in Boston (Correction: an earlier version of this story incorrectly listed her choice as the University of California-Berkeley College of Music. The VOICE regrets the error)  where she’ll complete her undergraduate degree and consider pursuing a master’s. She has plans to own her own record company that would serve indie artists and eventually develop her own record label. The best part of teaching: “I’d have to say it’s probably just seeing how excited they get when something sounds good or when they learn something or when they create something. And just seeing them in this musical element. I think that’s probably the most exciting thing to me.” Lessons learned: Holder-Cozart said that her students have taught her about patience and being honest with herself and others. They also serve as a reminder on how to live her life and pursue her goals. “Being with them and seeing how carefree they are and just how genuine they are towards what they’re doing means a lot.”   Louis Eaglesfield assists a saxophone player during a break between the orchestra’s practice sessions.

How she got here: Eaglesfield first began to play the clarinet in fourth grade while growing up in New York. She followed her passion for music to the Indiana University School of Music where she received a degree in music education. While looking through a booklet of volunteer opportunities, Eaglesfield came across Kidznotes. As a clarinet player, she wanted to join an orchestra or band and, at that time, the Durham Kidznotes location was the only location with an orchestra. The best part of volunteering: “I like helping the kids. I like seeing their expressions when they have mastered something–when they improve and they master something–because I feel that music really improves their attention span and their ability to focus and to stick with something.” Learning to listen: “Listening to the creativity and the emotion that it creates I think is the most wonderful thing of music. The mastering an instrument is just a way to get there. It’s just a way to get there to listening to it.” Favorite Kidznotes experience: “Just seeing the kids progress. Seeing them progress on their instrument. Playing more difficult music, learning a new instrument. It’s cute to watch the young ones learn a new instrument and get a sound out of it, because I work with winds. To get a sound out of it, they get real excited.”   Rebecca Rogers leads the Vivaldi orchestra through a selection from Vivaldi’s “Gloria”. The orchestra is preparing for their winter concert on Saturday, Dec. 16 at the Holton Center Auditorium.

Where she’s from: Originally from Baltimore, she now lives in Pittsboro. How she got here: Rogers’ musical career began in an elementary school band program in Maryland, later attending the Peabody Preparatory music program. She studied music, biology and psychology at Swarthmore College in Pennsylvania. After graduating, she followed her education to Paris and New York City before spending the majority of her professional life teaching music around Boston and Hanover, New Hampshire. After years of teaching full-time, Rogers made a career change, entering into research regulatory work while keeping her passion for music. Nearly three years ago, a job in the Research Triangle brought her to North Carolina. This March, she returned to teaching music and discovered Kidznotes. Sharing and self-discipline: Rogers is passionate about sharing what she knows and helping her students learn self-discipline that they’ll use for the rest of their lives. She also enjoys seeing students of different ages coming together to make music. “I’ve loved bringing people together, people of different ages, and sharing music. I think music and music education are so critical, because I think each of us needs to find things that are outlets and that give us pleasure.” Connecting to the community: In addition to connecting with her students, Rogers said she likes how being at Kidznotes has connected her to families and her new community. “It’s really made me feel much more like I belong in North Carolina.” For more information on the Kidznotes program, visit http://www.kidznotes.org/ or call 919-321-4475.

  • A sprinkle of Jazz, a dollop of community and a dash of Latin flareA sprinkle of Jazz, a dollop of community and a dash of Latin flare

    What started off as a simple idea for a coffee shop with soothing background music has morphed into a full-blown restaurant, café, cocktail bar and music venue. Nestled into his chair at Beyu Caffe, Dorian Bolden tried to figure out whether his cappuccino was, in fact, his second or third cup of the day. Bolden, a Duke graduate, opened Beyu Caffe in 2005. Since then, it has become a constant presence in the Durham community. “Our mission at Beyu Caffe is to be the ultimate community gathering place,” Bolden said. A shot of the main stage at Beyu Caffe (Staff photo by Elle Kehres) Beyu Caffe hosts events almost every night of the week—most of them musically inclined—but it wasn’t always that way. Bolden said that while it can be difficult incorporating so much of the music and community aspect into his venue, it’s worth it—especially when he saw how popular the events were becoming. “The music and community part really took off,” Bolden said. “I became fascinated with the musicians and their passion. The quality of the music justified the cost.” One of the events that Beyu Caffe holds is Latin Vibe, where every Thursday is full of live music and dancing. It also features an energetic mix of Salsa, Bachata and Kizomba. Brandon LaRue is a regular participant at Beyu’s Latin Vibe event. “Beyu is my favorite place to dance,” LaRue said. “It has a really warm atmosphere, and it’s just big enough to give you that party feeling without it being too crowded to dance. It’s the only Latin social with live music that I’ve been to, and the band really brings the room to life.” Larue also said that whether or not you’re an experienced dancer or a novice, this Beyu event can be for you. “You’ll see dancers of all levels at Beyu, from people whose first time touching a dance floor was the free lesson before the event, all the way up to amazing dancers like the Cobo brothers themselves,” Larue said. James Cobo practicing his dance moves (Staff photo by Elle Kehres) James Cobo of the CoboBrothers Dance Company is the driving force behind Latin Vibe at Beyu. Cobo reached out to Bolden about hosting a Latin dance event last December. The event was turned into a reality in February. Cobo knew he wanted to hold his event at Beyu after his first visit. “Immediately, when I walked inside, I was drawn to that place,” Cobo said. “I loved the brick walls, the wooden floor and, quite frankly, I loved the staff members. They had a really special vibe that I connected with.” Cobo said that he really wanted to emphasize the music and the talent that the musicians showcased. He said he went out of his way to contact some of the best talent in the area. “They had the capacity for the live music and I brought in the dancers for the space—so together it was the perfect partnership,” Cobo said. For Bolden, the Latin Vibe event means incorporating a different part of the community into his venue—even if dancing isn’t his forte. “Latin Vibe adds a great level of depth to who we are,” Bolden said.

  • Unify dynamic community districts through art – the first major public art work of the Durham SmART Vision PlanUnify dynamic community districts through art – the first major public art work of the Durham SmART Vision Plan

      Durham Arts Council hosted a “Meet the Artist Open House & Discussion” on Friday in its art gallery at 120 Morris Street in downtown Durham where the artist selected to create the monumental Art Wrap for the Corcoran Street Garage was invited to talk about his concept designs and artistic vision for this project. The Corcoran Street Garage, owned by Durham of City, was built in 1964, and is a significant construction in the downtown historic district. The creation of the monumental Art Wrap for the garage is the first major public artwork of the Durham SmART Vision Plan, a multi-year public art and urban design strategy supported by over 26 state and national partners. The plan will connect three distinct districts -American Tobacco, City Center and Durham Central Park – along the North-South corridor.

(Staff photo by Yizhou Jiang) Aiming at promoting arts-driven economic development projects that transform downtown, the SmART Vision Plan envisions an art-infused and dynamic corridor that provides pedestrians with an exhilarating experience where they will be appealed to stay and visit multiple locations along the corridor regardless of time. “The SmART Plan focuses on transformation of pedestrian visual experience since the city is changing so quickly,” said Jean Greer, the arts consultant and researcher of the project. Olalekan Jeyifous is a Nigerian-born artist, architect and designer from Brooklyn, New York. Graduated with a bachelor’s degree in Architecture from Cornell University, he has created major sculptures, designs, murals, installations, and public art for clients, events and exhibitions throughout the country. His design stood out from 107 artist applications from across the United States, and he will oversee fabrication and installation of large-scale art banners that are planned to wrap the exterior south and southeast facades of the garage. “For this proposal, my inspiration derived from my desire to reinforce the objectives of the Durham SmART Vision Plan, to transform the three districts into a vibrant cultural destination,” said Jeyifous. During the first time Jeyifous visited Durham, he walked around the neighborhood and took many photos, observing the surroundings and feeling the atmosphere. He said he enjoyed exploring a community through walking on foot since it allowed him to experience closely with the local vibes. “I like the diversity of Durham and its strong sense of community,” Jeyifous said. He applied his observation to the designing framework. He describes his design as “an exuberant and continuous panoramic tapestry that transitions through very succinct distillations of Durham’s iconic architectural typologies, industrial fixtures, developing skyline, and sculptural-garden elements that draw on the technique and aesthetic of local artisans.” For the color choice, Jeyifous used a bright and colorful palette mainly composed of primary colors to create a bold and eye-catching imagery that appears differently at certain angles. The vivid colors also reflect the vibrancy of the community. Jeyifous said his favorite part of the project is the element of a brick wall symbolizing the American Tobacco area, and it actually serves as the anchor of the whole piece. “I like the purpose of the project the most,” said Deniqua Crichlow, Jeyifous’s college-mate who came to the event to see him. “He incorporated his own experience in the design and I’m looking forward to the final production.” The project is expected to complete installation by next spring.

  • Durham celebrates literacy at Reader’s PartyDurham celebrates literacy at Reader’s Party

      At the Hayti Heritage Center Sunday afternoon, Durham residents piled into the auditorium to enjoy selected readings from fellow community members. The Reader’s Party, a family-friendly event hosted by the Durham County Library and sponsored by the Durham Library Foundation, celebrates reading and performing in the community by inviting community members to the stage to read some of their favorite works, spanning excerpts from plays, short stories, songs, and even some original works. Isay Njie, 12, was among those that took to the stage Sunday. Isay read a poem called “Thanksgiving.” “Thanksgiving feels like never ending family time,” Isay read. Isay has been attending this event since it first started about two years ago. “I like hearing their stories and I like to read and be on stage,” Isay said. Jennah Formey, left, smiles with Isay Njie, right, and Mamadi Njie, center, after Sunday’s Reader’s Party. (Staff photo by Chrissy Murphy) Another patron of the event was Bernard Liles, who read his own work, “He Wanted,” and presented it with an accompanying art piece. Bernard goes to the event whenever he can, provided he doesn’t have to work. Bernard said he likes the event because, “people can express themselves in a safe environment.” The event is aimed to promote literacy in the Durham community. One of the founders of the event, Joan J. Njie said she wanted to promote a love of reading in the community. “I’ve always loved to read,” she said. “I was a reading teacher. I wanted to encourage children, especially, to enjoy reading.” Joan, the grandmother of Isay Njie, noted that a large number of attendees for the Reader’s Parties are older Durham community members. “What’s amazing is that older people are really loyal readers and come read to support the Reader’s Party,” Joan said. “The more the merrier.” Jennah Formey, a 15-year-old student at J. D. Clement Early College High School, said she loves to perform spoken word pieces at the event, but on Sunday she chose to observe. “I like to hear what people think,” Jennah said. Part of the beauty of the event is that it allows people to read or observe, Joan noted. She pointed out that some people might simply be too shy or nervous to get up and perform on stage, but nothing will stop them from taking in the experience. “They have an opportunity to come out and listen,” Njie said. Listening and performing aren’t the only things that bring people out to the event, though. Mamadi Njie, 10, also a grandchild of Joan Njie, came to the event on Sunday to help out with setting the event up. Mamadi helped set up microphones before the event started and helped with the lights throughout the event. “I had a job,” Mamadi said. “I was helping them because the light guy couldn’t make it.” Jenny Levine, the humanities and adult programming coordinator at the Durham County Library, helped start the event, which she said promotes lots of different themes throughout the community. “It merges literacy, community engagement, and theater,” Levine said. Levine said she loves to see the positive impact the event has on the community, recalling a performance from a past Reader’s Party. “One young mom came in and performed something she had written as a gift for her husband,” Jenny said. “She was so happy and excited.” The broad range of participants is another thing that Jenny said she enjoys about the event. “It attracts a diverse group of people,” Jenny said. “It has something for everyone.” The next Reader’s Party will be held in March.

  • Pharoahe Monch reflects on PTSD, performs with PitchBlak BrassPharoahe Monch reflects on PTSD, performs with PitchBlak Brass

    The day after his 45th birthday, Queens-based rapper Pharoahe Monch settled into his seat in the Duke University Forum for Scholars and Publics. Monch is no stranger to Durham, his most recent visit being last spring when he performed at Art of Cool Fest. This time, however, his purpose was greater: a week in residence at Duke University. Monch spent his week attending Duke’s renowned History of Hip Hop Class (co-taught by Dr. Mark Anthony Neal and 9th Wonder), offering guidance to students, speaking at the Forum for Scholars and Publics, and performing at the Reynolds Industries Theater. Discussion concerning his 2014 concept album remained at the core of his action last week, especially exploring the stigmatization of mental health in African American communities–particularly males. Pharoahe Monch falls into a chair mid-performance at Reynolds Industries Theater.  (Staff photo by Gabby Bulgarelli) The discussion at the Forum for Scholars and Publics was moderated by Dr. Mark Anthony Neal, and initially covered topics such as Monch’s early career and sources of inspiration. Then, there was a dramatic shift in focus. Years ago, Monch spiraled into depression. “At the time I was blessed to surround myself with really strong friends that were the foundation of my childhood and family, so when I couldn’t figure out why I was struggling I kind of immediately went home,” he said. “Their suggestions weren’t always good ones…I knew I was lucky. I started rapping about it because I had those feelings, but also so that anyone without that support could hear me speaking candidly and relate to it.” Luckily for Monch, it was discovered that his depression was chemically induced by a cocktail of medications he was taking for his chronic asthma. His dentist actually identified that it was the combination of medications that was causing his emotional spiral, and Monch was able to reclaim control over his life. As the talk progressed over the next hour Dr. Neal and Monch delved into topics like self-medication, intervention, art as therapy, and shattering stigma. Monch also reflected on the pressure for artists to engage in detrimental behavior and how some feel driven to help others overcome.

(Staff photo by Gabby Bulgarelli) “There is a strong push as of late to create awareness and provide education on various mental health issues through art,” said Monch. “People like [Kid] Cudi and myself. People just coming out and being honest about it and telling people things will be okay.” Monch also contemplated the ironic trajectory of his life and health. “From a young age I knew I was into art, like I was headed to art school or something non-traditional,” he said. “I knew because of my asthma that I needed to eventually work in a way that allowed me to rely on my thoughts or even my art, but not physical labor. “The irony is that as I got into music, the asthma became an enemy, a reason to fight against the illness verbally,” he continued. “In listening to Coltrane and different musicians who did long runs singing or long runs playing, it was a challenge for me to try to do that as an MC. I used it as a fight. I tried to propel myself to rap in a way that wouldn’t be expected of me. A gift and a curse.” After a short, yet thought provoking Q&A session, the discussion concluded. Some of the audience members–faculty, aspiring musicians, local activists, students, and hip-hop fans–lingered to briefly chat with Monch, and ask for signatures and pictures. “I don’t come to FSP events often,” said Raven Herndon, a Durham-based educator. “Dr. Neal gives a lot of talks, and I follow him online, so I thought I would come. I encountered Monch when was here for Art of Cool, so I know he has a stake in the Durham community and other Black communities everywhere. This was so powerful, and such a timely subject, especially when you consider things like rising police brutality.” The next evening, Monch performed at Reynolds Industries Theater, co-sponsored by The Forum for Scholars and Publics and Duke Performances. He was backed by PitchBlak Brass, a band from Brooklyn. The show with Monch also happened to be their last performance as a band, as the time had come for their members to part ways and pursue other interests. With 14 instrumentalists and 2 vocalists, the ensemble seemed to evoke the complex emotion contained in Monch’s work almost effortlessly. Riki Stevens was one of the supporting vocalists for Monch’s performance. (Staff photo by Gabby Bulgarelli) But there was significant effort behind the performance. “They were making a lot of noise in the city,” recalled Monch. “We thought it would be great to do a collaborative. We had to do over 10 rehearsals so that they could write the pieces and format them correctly and stuff. We added the string section and then we performed at Lincoln Center. The first show was so well received that we thought we’ve got to do this at least a couple more times.” Khemestry, a member of PitchBlak Brass, poses after the big performance.(Staff photo by Gabby Bulgarelli) A hand raised up at the back of the Forum for Scholars and Publics. “When can we expect another record?” said a happy-go-lucky man with a thick NY accent. Laughs and claps came from the audience. “That, by the way, is his tour manager (Guy Routte),” interjected Dr. Neal, to an eruption of loud laughter. “It takes me a long time and I tour a lot,” Monch chimed in. “So income-wise, I’m blessed to do that and it’s pretty fun as well. Many artists today have to make their income doing shows because records aren’t selling that well. It’s a shame, but that is really what pulls me away from the studio. This album is also being composed with a band, so it really is taking me quite some time to make Mr. Manager Man,” said Monch sarcastically, eyes pointed deliberately towards Routte. Monch later revealed a bit more about his vision for his next studio release: “Since I’m a huge rock guy, big Zeppelin fan, I’ve always been a fan of Plant’s vocals,” he said. “This new album is going to be hardcore, in a very soulful way. I’m really gonna try to get him on the record.” While we wait on the next one, feel free to check out Pharoahe Monch’s P.T.S.D. here.
