Durham students get CSI experience

Beware of a certain lab room at the N.C. School of Science and Mathematics. It's full of blood.
There's a corpse on the floor and a baseball bat nearby. Police crime-scene tape criss-crosses the entrance.
It's all staged, of course, as part of a summer camp for Durham middle-school students.

Enlightenment on Confederate flag was long overdue

"You can always count on Americans to do the right thing -- after they've tried everything else."

That's an observation widely credited to Winston Churchill, though it's one he may or may not have ever made. Whoever said it, the truth of the axiom has seldom been more obvious than now, as we watch the fall of the Confederate battle flag. It is too early to say whether this will prove lasting. But the signs certainly point toward a seismic shift.

ADF REVIEW: Noche Flamenca’s ‘Antigona’

Noche Flamenca’s rendition of Sophocles’ “Antigone” (Spanish translation, “Antigona”) at the American Dance Festival on Friday brought the Durham Performing Arts Center audience to its feet. The enthusiastic response could be attributed to the very real possibility that this troupe, featuring esteemed flamenco artist Soledad Barrio, performed the most passionate, dramatic, soulful and imaginative production of a Greek tragedy in recorded history.
