In Durham we focused on the theme of space, place, and power. This is the first year we organized a Freedom School in Durham so it was important for us to think often and critically about our relationship to the world around us.

From learning about the historically Black neighborhood of Hayti to reproductive justice, we considered the ways we relate to the world at large: what is our power? what is our space?

We left Durham Freedom School with a renewed curiosity to claim and reclaim the spaces and places we love from the powers that be.
