The realities of race, class and immigration hit home for storytellers participating in the Storymakers: Durham project in our Finding America story of the week.
Jamila Davenport explores gentrification, Roberto Nava illuminates life as an immigrant and a mechanic, and Debby Bussel describes the day she realized the privilege she has as a 54-year-old white woman.
Storymakers and WUNC work with 15 storymakers—people who live in one of the South’s most diverse and fast-growing cities — to explore divisions of race, class, and opportunity through a new public media platform created in partnership with SpiritHouse Inc., and Duke’s Center for Documentary Studies. The project is led by independent producer John Biewen.
