UNC journalism students explore race class and education in Durham, NC

There is no direct means by which a student becomes a dropout, unemployed or a criminal; there is no single decision, policy or process directly responsible for the transformation.

But certain characteristics tend to tip the scales toward either future success or future failure. The intersection of poverty and race can be a statistically dangerous place to be.

On Tuesday, April 22nd, members of the UNC School of Journalism and Mass Communication will be premiering their project, “Fault Lines: Race Class and Education in Durham, North Carolina.”

The screening will unveil the project website, which includes five video documentaries, graphics and a long piece narrative to help explore this complex issue.

Co-sponsored by the Center for Global Initiatives.

The event is free and open to the public. Click here to learn more and RSVP
