Student U and Durham Public Schools Foundation co-hosted a virtual community conversation as a companion to DPS' Growing Together community engagement sessions. Together we learned more about the history behind past policies and their effect on Durham Public schools. We also processed how our racialized history and experiences show up and impact our school decisions.
