Uneven Ground: The Foundation of Housing Inequity in Durham, NC

Speaker

Bob Korstad

In connection with the upcoming talk by Pulitzer Prize winner and author Isabel Wilkerson, who will deliver the Sanford Distinguished Lecture on Feb. 22, the public is also invited to join a related exhibit, talk and reception on Feb. 23. The exhibit, "Uneven Ground: the Foundation of Housing Inequality in Durham, N.C," connects the historical roots and contemporary effects of inequality in Durham. Developed in 2018, the exhibit was part of the Bull City 150 project in 2019, during the city's 2019 sesquicentennial and is relevant today. The exhibition is located on the first floor of the Rubenstein building, next to the Sanford building. Robert Korstad, a professor emeritus in public policy and history, leads the exhibit related to his scholarship. A panel discussion on local housing, exhibit talk and reception will be held Feb. 23 beginning at 4 p.m. at the Sanford building. The panel will feature Duke and Durham representatives talking about the city's housing challenges and hopes, with a reception to follow. All these events are free and open to the public.
