Winning Black Friday

    So Thanksgiving dinner has been served, eaten, and cleaned up.  Most of the relatives have gone home, and you’re reclining, semi-comatose, on the sofa.  Then Aunt Minnie from Altoona begins talking about Christmas shopping, and she Wants.To.Start.Tonight.

REVIEW: ‘Into the Woods’ stands out; ‘Midsummer’ looks within

PlayMakers Repertory Company at UNC Chapel Hill is presenting two plays that interact with themes of the forest and wishes and dreams. Their production of Stephen Sondheim’s musical “Into the Woods” trades stage time with William Shakespeare’s “A Midsummer Night’s Dream” through Dec. 7 in the Paul Green Theatre at the UNC Center for Dramatic Art.

Future among the stars awaits Student of the Month

Most folks upon meeting Myles Harris would describe him as quiet and soft-spoken.

And that observation would be correct until Harris begins to talk about the one thing he is most passionate about – rocketry.

Lewis Bowling: NCCU's athletic tradition among richest in N.C.

A short list of the great athletes connected to NCCU will ultimately leave out many deserving name, but hopefully the following names will remind area college sports fans that NCCU stands proudly as a university in athletics along with academics.

Greenberg: An exhibit, and a tribute to NCCU’s courage

In 1910 James E. Shepard founded a liberal arts college for black men (and women) in Durham, and 30 years later the school opened its Art Department, with a major in art. Sound simple? It was extraordinary because across the American black academic world two of the greatest African-American scholars, Booker T. Washington (1856-1915) and W.E.B. DuBois (1868-1963), were fighting over the soul of education for the country’s young African-Americans who were the first generation born out of slavery.

School discipline reform a win-win for schools and students

A long time before I became superintendent of Durham Public Schools, I began my career in Washington, D.C., as a teacher for seriously emotionally disturbed middle school students. I then became principal of a high school for troubled adolescents. These were all children and youth who, somewhere along the way, had become disconnected from their school communities and families. We worked hard to bring them back around. We weren’t always successful.
