James E. Williams Jr. became a public defender because of a firm and longstanding belief in freedom, equality and fairness. A lack of adequate vigorous representation for the indigent accused, most of whom are black or other people of color endangers all the gains Black people have fought for all these years. Join us as James shares his fight against that system of unfairness and oppression by three decades of work as a public defender. Speaker: James E. Williams Jr., retired Public Defender, Orange and Chatham counties

William B. Umstead State Park in Raleigh was two segregated parks from 1950 to 1964: Crabtree Creek State Park for whites and the Reedy Creek State Park for blacks. Things are very different today. In 1966, the two parks became what is known today as William B. Umstead State Park. Join us as we hike only a small portion (3.8 miles of moderate terrain) of this beautiful park! Bring Water!

Join us as we explore art exhibit by Jamaican artist Ebony G. Patterson “while the dew is still on the roses” . This is the most significant exhibition of the artist’s work to date, presented within a new installation environment that evokes a night garden. Her work investigates forms of embellishment as they relate to youth culture within disenfranchised communities. Her neo-baroque works address violence, masculinity, “bling,” visibility and invisibility within the post-colonial context of her native Kingston and within black youth culture globally. This exhibition focuses on the role that gardens have played in her practice, referenced as spaces of both beauty and burial; environments filled with fleeting aesthetics and mourning which is celebrating its first decade as a major center for the arts on Duke University’s campus and in the surrounding Research Triangle area. We will be having lunch at the museum’s café. Bring money for lunch.

The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) HOME Investment Partnerships Program (HOME) provides formula grants to states and localities to fund a wide range of a?ordable housing activities including building, buying, and/or rehabilitating a?ordable housing for rent or homeownership. HOME Participating Jurisdictions are required to create a five-year plan, called the Consolidated Plan, that describes their a?ordable housing and community development needs and market conditions and outlines priorities and goals
for addressing these needs with HOME funds and other resources. Through this process, the Collaborative will engage community members and solicit public input to develop a shared vision for a?ordable housing preservation and development, and identify data-driven targets to guide investments of HOME funds.
