Where Are Durham’s New, Black Leaders?

Record #:
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.
