Durham: A Self-Portrait 150

Saturday, November 16 | 6 PM

The original film, Durham: A Self-Portrait, premiered in 2008. It documented the story of this unique Southern city – tobacco, textiles, “Black Wall Street,” and the personal relationships that underpinned Durham’s success. Recent years have written a new chapter, taking a deserted downtown to high-rise development and lively nightlife and transforming established neighborhoods into hot real estate. But change has brought challenges. As most growing cities, Durham is tested by the problems of gentrification, inequity, and persistent poverty.

In the updated and provocative documentary opening November 16th, several dozen voices from all walks of life discuss Durham today. In the dynamic landscape before us, can we do a better job of achieving a shared prosperity? Does … can … our 150 years of history make a difference?
