How have you heard people and media discuss violence in protests? What language did they use and what points did they clarify? Was it a fair explanation of what happened? How does language reflect our societal position?What does it mean to be a good ally? What are some actions good allies can take? In this section, we have looked at various types of activism -- financial, legal, boycotts, allyship, and protest. What are the benefits and drawbacks of each of these? Which of these do you think is most effective?

What do you think is particular about Durham that created this vibrant social movements? So much was generated from this location.
Frachele Scott
01:47:54
Kathleen, I would say the vibrant social movements are in part a reflection of the diverse populations that always existed in Durham. There were indigenous people, formerly enslaved populations, free people of color, planter-class whites and family farmers. When golden leaf tobacco took off, there's another element of growth and people who came to work in Durham
Jeanette Stokes, she/her/hers

Thanks, Frachele.
Kathleen

So good to know.. thanks! Lots to learn. Sounds like a great place.
Frachele Scott

Where you have diverse populations, all of whom want to thrive, there will be movements.
