Course Description

This course will examine racial equality in Durham Public Schools. Required reading for the class will be Osha Gray Davidson’s book "The Best of Enemies: Race and Redemption in the New South," which provides an in-depth history of Durham’s race relations from its inception in 1869 to 1996. Students will be asked to reflect upon Durham’s historical race relations to evaluate objectively how far the city has progressed, particularly regarding racial equality in its educational system. Participants will have an opportunity to discuss Davidson’s book; hear from speakers who knew Ann Atwater and C. P. Ellis; and interact with educators, retired public servants, and students who contributed to and experienced DPS’s evolution. In addition, the class will be given the opportunity to explore ways to support DPS’s racial equality efforts now and in the future. | Lecture + Q&A.
