Abstract:
People are upset within Durham’s black community about a lack of leadership. Young, black leaders are present and visible in the community, but the older, more established black leaders of the Durham Committee on the Affairs of Black People are resisting their assumption of leadership positions. Some younger leaders are said to be more concerned with growing their businesses and holding onto their jobs rather than fighting for the community. Others believe that the Durham Committee’s infighting and lack of a defined agenda embraced by the community are preventing younger leaders from joining the group.

The Committee to Save the Lakewood Y in Durham is the winner of a 2007 Indy Citizen Award.

Abstract:
The NC Community Land Trustees are winners of a 1992 Independent Citizen Award. The group has been promoting a new model of home ownership in Durham’s neglected West End neighborhood. The group buys run-down houses and rehabilitates them with volunteer labor and the prospective owners help. Then, using low-interest loans, the new residents buy their homes while the Land trust keeps the title to the land beneath them. When the residents move, they sell their house back to the organization, making home ownership affordable for low-income families.
