LIVE! FROM THE FAYETTEVILLE STREET CORRIDOR: HAYTI'S 3RD FRIDAY ART & BUSINESS WALK AN EQUITABLE COMMUNITY ENGAGEMENT IMPLEMENTATION SERIES
About this Event

Friday, May 20 | Featuring: Rox Campbell, David Scott, and Whistle Stop Tours

You won't want to miss this month's LIVE! 3rd Friday event! Inside the Hayti Heritage Center, the We Are Here: Past, Present, Future exhibition will be on view in the Lyda Moore Merrick Gallery. This exhibition will include an artist talk and reception with photographer and documentarian Rox Campbell. Violinist David Scott and DJ GEMYNII will accompany the exhibit with Live + Love Music for the People. May's event will also re-open the outdoors portion of 3rd Fridays, with a celebration of Whistle Stop Tours' 10th anniversary.

"I was curious about what it felt like to exist as feminine in a Black female body, in a Black queer and/or a Black non-binary body. I was intentional about capturing everyday moments, as I believe portraying the mundanity of Black lives to be an act of resistance. After taking their photograph, I asked each person to choose a song that best reflects their experience. What emerged from those conversations and playlist is a redefinition of what Black Feminity looks, feels, and sounds like—a counter-narrative to the spectacle of Black Feminity created by a culture of white supremacy." —Rox Campbell

About Our Work

Be Connected Durham presents the Fayetteville Street Corridor (FSC) Fellows Project, #EverybodyEats, and #EquityRemovesBarriers (ERB) Initiatives. LIVE! FROM THE FSC is a response to the disconnection, displacement, and suppressed sense of belonging our neighbors experience living in a progressive Southern city where the harm caused by the construction of NC Highway 147 through a thriving Hayti remains unaddressed and therefore, unhealed.

LIVE! serves an artistic prescription for community in the sense that we bring the arts to the people and meet each other where we are. We are here. Vehicles for lasting change, visual, performing, literary, theatre, film, media, textile, soft & hard tech, and healing arts provide an education, a message, and a reminder of our power to build from a place already ripe with cultural abundance.

Our neighbors have been here--the creative geniuses of our time-- those who find ways to survive and thrive even when access to information, opportunity, and resources are limited. We are change artists. Our vision is to implement 3rd Friday celebrations of culture at five (5) creative placemaking and arts access points in the Historic Hayti District, marking the neighborhood's permanent name change as well as establishing the first annual Durham Carnival on Hayti in 2030. Because, we will be here.
