We believe that is is vital for all of us to develop a common language and understanding of poverty, mass criminalization, systemic racism and their impact on Durham residents. This shared understanding is necessary if we, are to address the harms and disparate outcomes that Black families are experiencing. Viewing these films and reading these books together has proven to be a powerful foundation for building a common language of understanding that will help us create a Durham that is accountable to us all.
