Here's quick look at what you'll find in today's Durham News, reaching 70,000 homes in the Bull City and beyond.
DURHAM STORIES: Titus Heagins calls his photo exhibit "Durham Stories: Not Hell, But You Can See It From Here." Read why this artist thinks some of our best known documentary photographs exploit the poor and how he set out to make a difference. Jim Wise has the interview.
HOPE VALLEY FARMS: I'm glad we previewed and then attended Wednesday night's meeting in southwest Durham. Stan Chambers reports about 100 people turned out to hear what Mayor Bell, Police Chief Lopez and other city officials are doing in the wake of recent armed robberies in the area.
HUNGRY GHOST: Rebekah Cowell, a freelance writer in northern Chatham, is developing a wonderful voice. Read her latest, a preview of "The Hungry Ghost," a unique production opening this week at Manbites Dog Theater before playing other venues in the western Triangle.
HANGIN' WITH: Mr. Cooper, as in Geoffrey Cooper, our new intern from N.C. Central University. He is the editor of The Campus Echo and contributes his first story for us interviewing local people on the coming week's inauguration of the nation's first African American president.
We have a lot more, including Flo Johnston's weeky faith page and the next installment of "Comunidad," our series of features presented in English and Spanish as a bridge between the cultures in our city. Tell us what you think about that and all our other content in a letter to firstname.lastname@example.org. Your letters and guest columns make The Durham News stronger.
Stay warm, and thanks for reading,
