“All the breweries to taste the fantastic beer that’s produced here! Usually we’ll start at Ponysaurus Brewing Co. to enjoy its beer garden and $1 scoop of snacks, then head to Bull City Ciderworks (cider counts, too!), Hi-Wire Brewing Co., Bull City Burger & Brewery, Fullsteam Brewery and Durty Bull Brewing Co. before moving on toward South Durham and hitting Starpoint Brewing, Barrel Culture Brewing and Blending and The Glass Jug Beer Lab.”

“Namu is my favorite hidden gem that I wouldn’t let anyone miss! However, the must-visit staples downtown include: walking around the American Tobacco Campus, catching a DPAC show or a ball game at the Durham Bulls Athletic Park, with coffee at The Oak House and cocktails at Unscripted Durham or Alley Twenty Six. Finish it off with tea from Beyu Caffe and a souvenir from Hometown Apparel!”

“We’re so lucky to have the Eno River in Durham, and I love to share it with my friends who visit from out of town. Warm weather might involve toes in the water at Bobbitt Hole or an afternoon floating in the quarry, and in the fall, it’s the best place in town to admire the orange leaves.”

LETTER

PUTTING DOWN ROOTS I

’m stressed about paint colors – blue-gray, green-gray, beige-gray … how are there so many variations of one color? My partner, Brendan Marks, and I recently purchased a home in Woodcroft, and boy, as a first-time homeowner, I’m learning more than I ever thought possible – not just about paint, but about all this city has to offer. We narrowed down our favorite neighborhoods before we found our perfect fit. It took me a while to familiarize myself with Durham’s landscape, but I’ve learned a lot about our local pockets over my two-and-a-half years living here. Still, there’s always more to discover, and the real estate market is competitive – take it from me! Read more about it and learn about a few of our neighborhoods starting on page 28. There are also other logistics to consider: setting up the water and cable, updating your driver’s license ... the list goes on. The phone numbers on page 12 are a godsend. It will save you (as it did me!) from an information overload. Our directories for dentists (page 116), doctors (page 110) and dining (page 82) will also keep you on track for a healthy year in your new home. I’m excited to put down roots in the Bull City, especially now that we have a pup, too. Our “little demon,” as we playfully call her, can certainly wreak some havoc, so it’s good to know that Park Veterinary Hospital & Urgent Care is nearby. We didn’t exactly plan to live so close to our vet, but I know if we hadn’t, I would’ve been scouring our pet resources on page 78 (where you can also spot our girl, Kona – she loves the staff at Park Vet!). If there’s something I didn’t list above that you need help with, I’m sure it’s in this book. And if not, give us a shout. There’s so much to learn about this incredible city of ours. We know. We’ve been there.

ar care service company Spiffy, which was named a Readers’ Favorite Car Wash, was featured on ABC News Live for adding disinfection services to its customer offerings. The mobile car wash and detailing company was founded six years ago and grew to include on-demand maintenance and fleet management. “Our fleet clients felt the effects of COVID-19 first and asked us to help decontaminate vehicles and protect their drivers,” says Grayson Leverenz, Spiffy’s vice president of marketing. “We evolved and made vehicle disinfection happen. Those same clients realized their storefronts had been compromised and again asked if we could help. We evolved and made facilities’ disinfection happen.”

hen our family immigrated to the U.S., my parents had to work odd hours, so my brother and I had to prep and cook much of our own food,” Michael Lee says. The Readers’ Favorite Chef owns four restaurants: M Tempura, M Kokko, M Pocha and M Sushi. “I grew up cooking from a very young age and flipping burgers at [a] Sonic drive-thru at 14: my first job. After high school, I got a job at a local Japanese restaurant working in the kitchen and serving, so the restaurant and food scene always stayed with me as a big part of my life. I enjoyed the restaurant work so much that I dropped out of college in my senior year with one semester left (of course, my parents tried to kill me). “I love working in the lines of all my kitchens ... it isn’t work most of the time; it’s more like a hobby! Being able to serve the wonderful people of Durham and the Triangle is probably one of the best gifts of my lifetime. The support and love is something I have not felt anywhere else during my work at more than 25 restaurants before North Carolina. I also love how diverse the community is, too, which has a direct effect on the food scene as well. I am here for life!”

he Raleigh-Durham area is ranked as the No. 11 best place to live in the country by U.S. News & World Report – so you know you’ve come to a great city. But relocation can be overwhelming, starting with figuring out how to find a home. We asked Karen Roberts – president of the Durham Regional Association of Realtors

(durhamrealtors.org), which represents more than 1,600 Realtors and associate members in the Triangle – to give us an overview of the local market.

28 2021 DURHAM MAGAZINE VISITORS & RELOCATION GUIDE

Realtor Karen Roberts, owner of Classic Carolina Realty, has opened three real estate offices in the Triangle and has hired and trained hundreds of real estate professionals. Karen and her husband, Len, are native North Carolinians. They have two sons, Brandon and Bryson, one daughter-inlaw, Beth, and grandchildren Theo and Elle.

How would you describe Durham’s current real estate market? And how has it changed in the last year or so? Our market has changed a lot due to the pandemic. With so many brick-andmortar employers allowing employees to work from home, we have seen an influx of buyers from other parts of the country moving to our area. Our market is extremely competitive, and most sellers are seeing multiple offers within a very short period of time. What’s the average turnaround time on the market right now? The average days on the market in Durham is 15. How do apps like Zillow, Trulia and Redfin factor into the home search process? Are there best practices when it comes to potential buyers using these apps? Zillow and Trulia are still some of the major apps, but their

Realtor.com is one of the most accurate and consumer-friendly apps in the marketplace. One benefit of working with an agent is that the buyer can be added to an active search through the Triangle MLS (Multiple Listing Services) to see properties immediately as they are listed, prior to syndication. What are your tips on choosing the right Realtor? Referrals are still the No. 1 way Realtors attract new clients. A Realtor’s web presence is extremely important as well as researching agent reviews from previous clients. What’s your advice to someone just moving into this area? Rent first, or buy? Depending on their research and prior knowledge of the area, indicators like historic low interest rates may prompt a buyer to pursue purchasing over renting. If they choose to jump in and buy, where do they start? Find a Realtor you are comfortable with and go over the home-buying process. Meet with a

general rule of real estate is that more square footage equals more value, but for homeowners Cam Hosie and Valerie Michael, “less is more” was the perfect mantra for their Duke Forest kitchen project. “The traditional approach of adding to a house is not always the solution,” says architect Matthew Konar, who designed the renovations. Though the original 1962 home had a modernist vibe, a later renovation left each room feeling isolated and dark. “In this case,” Matthew says, “removing features that [were] not sensitive to the original house and then accentuating the midcentury aesthetic were the best design moves.” Matthew and his team expanded the kitchen’s footprint, both horizontally and vertically. General contractor CQC Home cut a hole in the kitchen’s ceiling to create impressive views and allow more light into the space. Upon seeing the massive cutout, Cam texted Matthew with one request: Make it even bigger. To simplify foot traffic into the backyard and allow for a larger refrigerator, the couple decided to borrow space from a guest bedroom, and they removed two dividing walls in the kitchen to provide clean sightlines to the rest of the first floor. Though the home lost a full bedroom upstairs and part of one downstairs, it gained a bright, open entertaining space that connects the kitchen to both the upstairs great

Downtown continues to be a hot market. Additionally, 751 South is a popular new construction option with shopping, parks and common space. Are there “best times” of the year to buy, or to start looking to purchase a home? There’s never a bad time to purchase a home in the Durham area. We typically see more homes come on the market in the spring. What types of homes are people buying? Detached and attached homes. As of November 2020, the median sales price was up 10.7%, average sales price was up 7.1%, inventory levels were down 47.9%, days on market were down 40%, closed sales were up 20.1%, new listings were up 6.6% and months of inventory was down 52.6%. Once you’ve moved here, what’s the best way to get settled and make Durham feel like home? Jump in! Get to know downtown, dine in our local restaurants, spend the day at Sarah P.

Inhabit Real Estate Realtor Adrian Brown recommended Alicia HyltonDaniel as general contractor for the renovation. “We chose Alicia because she was honest, funny, personable and creative,” Deana says. “She spent loads of time getting to know how we lived. She asked good questions and connected with each of us in the family to create a goal for the space that suited all of our needs.” If they could do things differently, Deana says, they would have simply started their makeover sooner. “We lived in the space for four years before completing a full-scale renovation,” she says. But, Deana adds, spending some years living in the home helped inform the family’s design choices and narrow down the renovation to what they really wanted. When they’re not enjoying their home, the family spends weekends having breakfast at Monuts or GRUB Durham, getting in a workout at the downtown YMCA or Triangle Rock Club, and then picking up the dogs for an afternoon at Ponysaurus Brewing Co. “We love the family atmosphere there,” Deana says.

built their Bahama home on 11.5 quiet acres 32 years ago, when Durham looked a lot different. “We didn’t have access to Broadway shows at DPAC, see games at the big Durham Bulls Athletic Park or even have any international flights out of RDU,” Linda says. “But on the other hand, it is so special that a short commute away from all of downtown’s great amenities, areas like Bahama still provide rolling hills and minimal development for those who enjoy this quiet lifestyle.” Today, their land is a playground for their grandkids, Matthew and Owen, who live just five minutes away with their parents, Bryan Dickerson, the Dickersons’ son, and his partner, Lindsey Denton. Having a house full of family aligns well with Linda’s design mantra: “A home should be lived in and comfortable.”

of Acme Plumbing Co., raised their son, Laurence Tilley, in a 1923 Dutch Colonial home in Trinity Park. Between 2001 and 2004, Sasha Berghausen of BLOK Architecture and his wife, Sara Berghausen, lived in the bungalow next door. The couples enjoyed one another’s company on their porches and in their backyards, and became fast friends over cold beers and conversations about changes they might make to their respective homes. “We loved the neighborhood and yard when we lived here, but the home’s layout was a bit challenging,” Sara says. “We tried a few different ways to make it work before we ended up moving on.” About 10 years later, the bungalow had seen a few owners come and go, and Lee Ann continued to eye it with ideas. In 2014, Lee Ann and Larry purchased the bungalow for Laurence and his wife, Jessica Tilley. Soon, though, grandchildren Susan and Charlie came along, and the two-bedroom, one-bathroom space no longer made sense for the growing family. By that point, Lee Ann and Larry were enjoying life as grandparents and feeling ready to downsize, and Larry planted the seed for a solution: They would trade houses with Laurence and Jessica – and Lee Ann would finally

pink accents, that’s my work uniform. So, when I’m wearing teal, that’s just me being me. Not working.” Nicole, who owns dance company Empower Dance Studio on Parrish Street, learned about One City Center while attending community meetings as a new downtown business owner. Attracted to the building’s convenient location and underground parking garage, Nicole was one of the first residents to move into the complex in 2017. Around the same time, she noticed that her clients, predominantly Black families, were not frequenting downtown. Today, she says, that is changing. “As downtown flourished and shifted, what I love seeing are my families coming,” Nicole says. “They’re walking around, and you see our girls in the pink skirts shopping at Bulldega [Urban Market].” Nicole has stayed busy running Empower while also managing consultant work with private development companies and community engagement. She made adjustments during the pandemic as she taught virtual dance classes from her living room, modifying to a limited range of physical movement and keeping the music levels down for next-door neighbors. But she’s also used the pandemic as an opportunity to rest and refocus. She converted her balcony into a space for meditation and growing kitchen herbs, tomatoes and zucchini. Nicole and her guests can also sit and enjoy a bird’s-eye view of the city and the rooftop recreational area on the sixth floor below. The mobile app GroupMe helps her stay in touch with fellow residents. And when she’s not at her apartment, you can find Nicole at one of her favorite downtown watering holes – The Wine Feed, The Oak House or Alley Twenty Six.

s the pace of life changes in response to COVID-19, Cortland Bull City continues to offer the comforts of home, convenience of amenities, and proximity to many local eateries. Featuring a skyline terrace, outdoor fire pit, and courtyard, Cortland Bull City has many spaces in which residents can safely socialize and enjoy downtime outdoors. Private offices and a conference room provide more flexibility to work or learn from home while a 24/7 fitness center, a game room, and resident lounges offer respite from the daily bustle. With so much to do, Cortland residents can stay close to home for both entertainment and relaxation. In addition to its numerous amenities, Cortland Bull City is known for going the extra mile for residents—even after move-in day. Instead of just offering a place to call home, Cortland communities strive to provide an exceptional living experience. As people move from across the U.S. to Durham, this Cortland community offers a culture that goes beyond typical apartment living in the heart of downtown. Tiffany Hoyd recently moved from California to Durham to attend the NCCU School of Law. She shares how Cortland Bull City has made her cross-country transition a smooth one and why she loves living downtown.

Why have you chosen to call downtown Durham home?

“I’m in my first year of law school at NCCU and I wanted to be in a fun downtown area that was close to campus.”

What do you love about the downtown area?

“Great food places and everything I will ever need is centralized here.” Note: Check restaurant websites for their most recent hours and measures they are taking to ensure customer safety.

What has been your biggest challenge since moving from California to North Carolina? How are you overcoming these obstacles? “Learning the area has been a bit of a challenge due to COVID-19, but there is always an app to help me along the way.”

Do you have a favorite local hangout in downtown Durham that you would recommend? “My law school friends and I are always going to Dame’s Chicken and Waffles.”

Do you have a favorite restaurant in downtown Durham that you would recommend to others? “Luna’s. I love Peruvian food.”

What has been your favorite past time during the pandemic?

“I’m still a law student, so I don’t have the ability to engage in many of my favorite pastimes, but I like to swim when I get the chance. Cortland [Bull City] has an amazing pool and game room.”

What do you love about Cortland Bull City?

“It’s not really crowded; it has a very [chic] environment and the staff really goes out of their way to be helpful, even after you’ve signed your lease.”

What’s your favorite feature in your apartment home and why?

“I like the key fob entry. It makes me feel safe and secure. Also, the setup of the unit is awesome; the high ceilings and floorto-ceiling windows provide an amazing ambiance, view and relief from a day filled with Zoom classes.”

GOBankingRates ranked Durham No. 25 on its list of Best Cities for Young Professionals.

Durham ranked No. 11 on LinkedIn’s list of best U.S. cities to launch a career. The ranking was determined by analyzing the availability of high-paying jobs for recent grads alongside the availability of affordable housing.

The Durham area ranked No. 3 among mid-sized U.S. metros for employment in six-figure occupations, according to a report released by Volusion in February 2020.

SmartAsset ranked Durham No. 9 in a list of U.S. cities where women are most successful. The ranking was determined by measuring the percentage of women with bachelor’s degrees, the median annual earnings of women and the percentage of women business owners, among other factors.


Durham ranked No. 13 on a list of 180 cities whose unemployment rates are recovering the quickest, according to financial news site WalletHub.

The Raleigh-Durham area ranked No. 7 in startup ecosystems in Business Facilities magazine’s 2020 Metro Rankings Report.

Fundera, a company that helps small business owners shop, compare and make smart financial choices for their businesses, named Durham the No. 7 best city in the nation for women entrepreneurs in 2020. Durham received the recognition thanks to low housing costs, high job growth numbers (prior to COVID-19) and its large number of self-employed women business owners.

“There’s something about the shared vulnerability of everyone being themselves,” BetterOn’s Ryan Carey said. Here, Macaela Campbell practices speaking on camera.

fter the coronavirus outbreak, many workers were forced to spend the better part of their day on camera. Video communication training company BetterOn was uniquely positioned to help and began offering its coaching and leadership programs online through Zoom. “All of our leaders/clients are having to navigate managing remotely,” said Ryan Carey, founder of BetterOn. “We are not only training them on how to use video more effectively, but also pushing them to lead with courage in a time when fear is high.” Before circumstances changed, Carey gave Durham Magazine writer Brandee Gruener a taste of what he does in his downtown studio. She found herself in front of the camera, counting to 10 like she was sad,

like she was excited, like she was bragging, like she was sharing a secret. The exercise helps to explore your emotional range on camera. (Carey also noted that when people watch a video of themselves “bragging,” they discover that really just means showing confidence – a desirable trait in any leader.) He provided tips along the way (lower your chin is the most universal one). He played back videos on mute so Gruener could see her body language. He even had her stand on a trampoline for one take, a trick that seemed to drain away the nervousness, or at least appeared that way on screen. 

What is the purpose of these exercises? According to research, people remember how you speak more than what you have to say. Carey is there as a sort of therapist to cringe through the footage with you, but he doesn’t offer a long list of criticisms. He’s more interested to hear what you see in the performance. Most clients are surprised to find out that they actually look pretty good. Eventually, they are desensitized to standing up in front of others, get out of their own way and just express themselves. Carey started exploring the BetterOn concept in San Francisco and New York. He moved to Durham and found that the city provided him the space to grow his business. Today, BetterOn offers coaching to people who need to prepare for a speech or video marketing; custom leadership programs to companies like Red Hat; and team-building group sessions. Ismail helps his mom, Jeddah’s Tea owner Morgan Siegel, pack up cold brew and bissap concentrate for an online purchase. “I had to give this talk, and I didn’t even flinch,” is the kind of feedback Carey hears from executives.

LOCAL BUSINESSES SAW THEIR WORST YEAR YET

W

hen Durham was told to “stay in place” because of COVID-19, small businesses that relied on face-to-face contact had to pivot and find a way forward. Many shut down temporarily and laid off employees. Online stores launched overnight. Curbside sales became a primary way of doing business. Personal connections transformed into Zoom sessions. Even after reopening, retailers had to get by with restrictions on how many customers could come through the store. Those in hospitality were especially hard-hit, said Susan Amey, president and CEO of Discover Durham. Her organization reached out to restaurants and retailers early in the crisis to get a sense of how they were affected. Although Amey was careful to say that the response to their survey was too small to be representative, the data they did receive highlighted the devastation. Of 82 businesses, 56% temporarily shut down and 7% expect to close permanently. Eightyfour percent of business owners laid off employees. Even more concerning, 95% of businesses saw revenues decline more than 20%, and 40% had more than an 80% decline. Discover

B

efore HBO’s sci-fi thriller “Lovecraft Country” aired in late summer 2020, the network sent out stylized influencer packages made up of items from Black-owned businesses, brands and creatives. The series was created by a Black woman and stars Black heroes, so HBO’s marketing teams wanted to make sure the touchpoints for fans also remained Black. Inside the bags was a bookletstyle guide providing insight into the vendors, their company missions and the creative process behind each product. Of the eight products in the gift bag, two were from Durham-based businesses: an “Atticus” tote bag from Autopilot and a “Sundown” candle by Bright Black. 

“Think global, act local” – essentially the mantra of Crystal Dreisbach of Don’t Waste Durham, which drives new ways of reducing waste through methods like reusable food and beverage to-go containers; Alyssa Cherry of Fillaree, which makes small-batch, organic and refillable cleaning supplies that help reduce plastic waste; and Bryce Northington of Gather Green, which helps businesses prevent waste, manage it and “divert as much from the landfill as possible.” 

Amanda Freeman wakes up at 5 a.m. to get to her job as the foster manager and medical coordinator at the Animal Protection Society of Durham by 7:30 a.m. She matches available animals to foster families, schedules pickups, provides supplies and then follows up weekly to make sure the animal is adjusting well. Amanda knows firsthand about the importance of pets – she has four dogs and a cat, and she is a beekeeper. “To be able to solidify the lifelong bonds between people and their pets is worthwhile to me,” she says.

Justin Maness, founder of Buddha Bee Apiary, and his daughter, Azalea. Buddha Bee offers a Host-a-Hive program, in which Justin installs hives on the properties of interested homeowners and helps them manage their bee colonies. “When I go into a beehive, it’s like everything else blurs out, and I’m in my happy space,” Justin says. “The real value here is seeing the beauty and the wonder on a kid’s face, or seeing someone talk to someone else about how cool bees are and how they are hosting hives.”

True Flavors Diner was named one of the best breakfast and brunch spots by our readers, and its blueberry barbecue chicken and waffles – with chipotle-blueberry glazed fried chicken breast, scratch-made blueberry buttermilk waffles served with butter, warm syrup and two eggs any style – is one of the reasons why. “Our diner is built around our belief that food should be shared, enjoyed and talked about!” says True Flavors owner and executive chef Sidney Coves. 

Kim Bonilla and Bailey Moore enjoy a drink under the cabana at the corner of the pool at award-winning restaurateur Giorgios Bakatsias’ riverside retreat in Bahama. Giorgios’ restaurants include Parizade, Vin Rouge and Local 22. “[His parties] are very theatrical, abundant,” says Marika Caraganis, who runs business development for Giorgios Hospitality Group. “Glamorous, but in a very approachable way. There’s always a very eclectic mix of people because George knows so many people.”

In 2012, Don Ricardo Massenburg was furloughed from his job as an early childhood program researcher at UNC-Greensboro. He leaned into the uncertain break as a chance to focus on his side project: interior design. He launched his business, Design Inkredible, and in the eight years since founding his company, he’s designed luxe dorm rooms, entire 6,000-square-foot homes and plenty of projects in between. Don also has some big-name clients, from CeeLo Green to NFL players. He loves the travel and the opportunities, he says, but he remains firmly rooted in Durham. Don grew up in Raleigh and graduated from N.C. Central University. “[Durham] is home for me,” he says.

Jovan Murphy is no chicken when it comes to picking up a chicken at Old Mill Farm, one of many unique venues in Durham offering a chance for parents and their little ones to both learn and spend time together in a variety of subject matters. The My Little Farmer program at Old Mill Farm is rain or shine and holds farm-education classes – which cover themes including riding, art and music – every day of the week. Old Mill Farm has none of the usual sharp tools lying around, but instead has plenty of sweet touches like a cheery sunflower mural, farm animal cutouts, and an indoor play area with a kitchen and baby animal-sized barn stalls.

“We have a tremendous opportunity to improve the health of the communities we serve, our members and employees.” – Tunde Sotunde, President and CEO, Blue Cross NC

At Blue Cross and Blue Shield of North Carolina (Blue Cross NC), we believe in the power of giving and the future of our communities. This year we’ve donated more than $800,000 to Historically Black Colleges and Universities, delivered more than four million meals statewide and invested nearly $8 million in rural health and wellbeing initiatives across North Carolina.† Although the pandemic has changed the way we work, we remain true to our mission and have given more than $5.6 million to organizations providing crisis response including access to healthy food and safe housing in the wake of COVID-19. And with employees who raised nearly $1.4 million during our annual GivingWorks campaign, totaling $2.3 million with matching funds, it’s easy to see that giving isn’t just a part of our culture, it’s who we are.†

WE RESOLVE.

Background

The Hayti Heritage Center was built in 1891 as St. Joseph African Methodist Episcopal Church and was integral to the faith community. It was also central to the community activism for which Durham was known, especially on the heels of Jim Crow segregation. The Center is part of the once thriving, economically sustained district that was dubbed “Black Wall Street” by Booker T. Washington, and since 1975 has been a cultural hub for Durham and the African American community.

Brag Lines

The historic Performance Hall has virtually flawless acoustics and is an intimate space that seats up to 400. Hayti offers core programs in visual and performing arts including African dance and drumming, the Heritage Film Festival, artist exhibitions, a music series and the Jambalaya Soul Poetry Slam/Spoken Word Team. Hayti offers historic tours that help preserve her heritage. Hayti inspires all generations with shared stories about her rich heritage, vibrant present and bright future. Over 59,000 visitors are greeted annually. We love this place!

Background

StepUp Durham’s story began in 2013 with the formation of an exploratory committee, consisting of Durham residents concerned with under- and unemployment in our city. After examining StepUp’s core values and programming in Raleigh and Greensboro, the committee determined that opening a local office would benefit Durham families. The committee helped us establish racial equity, community listening, and assetbased community development as core organizational principles and practices. StepUp Durham’s doors opened in September 2015.

Brag Lines

Since our doors opened, 955 individuals and 419 children have benefited from our programming. Step1 Employment Readiness Training graduates obtained employment averaging $12.02 per hour. 55% of our programs’ graduates who have obtained employment had a criminal background; 84% had zero income; 96% lived below the poverty line; and 100% lived below the median household income for Durham. With unemployment at record highs in our community, StepUp Durham is needed now more than ever before.

DINING GUIDE RAISE A GLASS

Durham was recognized as one of “10 Untapped Beer Cities Poised to Blow Up” by Thrillist in 2016. The brewery scene has certainly grown since then, and the city was noted most recently in a Forbes article as adding to the state’s status as a “craft beer mecca” (Fullsteam, specifically, was lauded for paving “the way for many more breweries to open and significant job creation in the industry.”) Many of the following breweries and distilleries also offer tours.

DURHAM PERFORMING ARTS CENTER Locally known as DPAC (pronounced dee-pack), the largest of our city’s entertainment venues celebrated its 12th anniversary last year and was named the 2018 Theater of the Year by the International Entertainment Buyers Association, a leading trade organization for live entertainment industry professionals. It’s ranked among the top five theaters of its size in America by Pollstar, Billboard Magazine and Venues Now. The theater held 155 events in 2019/2020, welcoming 335,769 guests in a season cut short due to COVID-19. The brightly lit glass structure in the heart of the city became a symbol of the downtown renaissance that started more than a decade ago, and it underwent several improvements in September 2017, including new carpet throughout the lobbies and seating area and 2,712 new seats. DPAC typically hosts more than 200 performances a year (totaling more than 2,350 in its existence), including touring Broadway productions, high-profile concerts and comedy events and family shows. Broadway hits such as “Hamilton,” “Wicked” and “Hadestown” are coming up this next season. Music acts A.R. Rahman and Styx are slated to perform upon reopening, as well as comedians Iliza, Bert Kreischer and Chris Tucker and an evening conversation event with Julie Andrews. 123 Vivian St.; 919-680-2787; dpacnc.com

THE CAROLINA THEATRE If DPAC is the shiny new kid on the block, The Carolina Theatre is Durham’s grand dame. Built in 1926, The Carolina Theatre underwent a multimillion-dollar renovation in the early ’90s that preserved its Roaring Twenties charm while introducing modern comforts and saw a $1.8 million update to those renovations in 2011. Its largest performance space, Fletcher Hall, can hold about 1,000, while Cinemas One and Two can seat 226 and 49, respectively. It’s home to festivals of all stripes, including the Nevermore Film Festival and OutSouth Queer Film Festival (formerly known as the North Carolina Gay + Lesbian Film Festival), which went virtual in 2020. It also hosts the Arts Discovery Educational Series to engage students and complement the course curriculum of Durham Public Schools as well as more than 60 concerts each year encompassing all genres of music, while also hosting comedy tours, live podcast shows and

more. Past performers include comedians Dave Chappelle, Iliza Shlesinger and Seth Meyers, as well as musicians Melissa Etheridge, Trey Anastasio and India Arie. The theater will temporarily close to the public from Jan. 1 through June 30, 2021, due to the ongoing pandemic. 309 W. Morgan St.; 919-560-3030; carolinatheatre.org

DUKE PERFORMANCES For art that’s new and pushes boundaries in multiple genres, familiarize yourself with the great work being done at Duke Performances. Performers over the years have included Mavis Staples, Simone Dinnerstein, Branford Marsalis Quartet, Camille A. Brown & Dancers, Rafiq Bhatia, Seong-Jin Cho, Imani Winds, Will Oldham, Oddisee, Shen Wei, 9th Wonder and Murs, among many others. Typically, dozens of Duke Performances shows take place at downtown venues, including several presentations at The Carolina Theatre. This is the first year that the 2020/2021 season performances will be held virtually due to COVID-19 restrictions. The virtual fall season featured Cuarteto Casals, a Spanish quartet; Chris Pattishall, a Grammy-nominated jazz artist; and piano duo Christina and Michelle Naughton. The season also featured Arts and Context, a free conversation series highlighting artists working in contemporary music, theater and dance. Audiences can look forward to future Duke Performances productions on campus at Duke Chapel, 401 Chapel Dr.; Reynolds Industries Theater, 125 Science Dr.; Rubenstein Arts Center von der Heyden Studio Theater, 2020 Campus Dr.; Baldwin Auditorium, 1336 Campus Dr.; Page Auditorium, 402 Chapel Dr.; and Sarah P.

THE FRUIT This former fruit and vegetable warehouse is now home to a different kind of jam – hosting visual and performing arts shows by performers who range from world-class artists to alternative and emerging ones. Durham Fruit is a multi-purpose arts venue which includes a gallery for modern art and photography. It also hosts large-scale immersive art experiences. The Durham Fruit & Produce Co. was built in the 1920s as a refrigerated distribution center on the rail line to serve local grocers. It grew into a small complex of warehouses, which were unified in 2018 into its full 22,000 square feet, with three distinct performance areas and a lobby bar. The new space has hosted: installations for international artists like Zanele Muholi, Georges Rousse and Mona Kuhn; local performance artists like Monet Marshall and Ginger Wagg; international jazz greats like Joshua Redman, Nnenna Freelon, Jason Moran and Cécile McLorin Salvant; electronic music stars like Questlove and Ellen Allien; and many more.

DURHAM ROOTS BEAR BULL CITY FRUITS

urham’s boldness is built on a history of inclusion and innovation. Durham has always dared to be different, from the time of its establishment before the Civil War through the Industrial Revolution and the civil rights movement to a present-day vibrant economy. Durham continues to grow and produce an openness and defiance that shapes the fruit of its future, thanks to its strong roots that run deep. Durham’s antebellum past was home to rural farms and one of the largest plantations in the South, Historic Stagville. Today it is preserved as a monument to history, and the state historic site

BULL CITY ORIGIN AND BEYOND

.T. Blackwell & Co.’s “Bull Durham Tobacco” is

PHOTO BY BILL RUSS

said to have been named after the bull on the label of the British Colman’s Mustard product, which was mistakenly thought to have been made in Durham, England. Blackwell later merged with several other brands to form the American Tobacco Company, the largest in the world. The bull remained as the company’s signature of authenticity, and Durham became known as the Bull City. Bennett Place, another of Durham’s three state historic sites, memorializes the largest troop surrender of the Civil War, which marked the beginning of the end of the war. That history can be explored through Bennett

LOCAL VOICE “Understanding Durham’s rich, complex history directly impacts our present and informs our future. From its early roots in tobacco, textile and finance on Black Wall Street to the rise of medicine and technology, we see a diverse, innovative entrepreneurial spirit that runs through our community. Appreciating the many stories that have shaped Durham fosters a stronger bond among neighbors.” Patrick Mucklow, Executive Director of the Museum of Durham History

ollowing the end of the Civil War, Durham’s African Americans sought their own opportunities, carefully cultivating entrepreneurial and educational pathways. In the late 19th and early 20th centuries, the Hayti neighborhood formed and flourished into a thriving business and residential district. In 1910, Dr. James E. Shepard founded what would become the oldest publicly funded liberal arts college for African Americans in the country: North Carolina Central University. As community engagement took root, Black-owned businesses blossomed in Durham. Parrish Street formed the foundation of what is now known as “Black Wall Street,” where many successful businesses like North Carolina Mutual Life Insurance Company and the Mechanics and Farmers Bank were formed. Despite the progress of many African Americans, segregation stifled their advancement. In response, African American Durhamites rose as leaders of the civil rights movement. Civil rights advocates like the Rev. Douglas Moore and Dr. Pauli Murray rose to prominence. Their efforts in heightening the recognition of racial and gender equality influenced the experiences of African Americans in Durham and across the country. African Americans have continued to build a distinct, robust legacy in Durham as entrepreneurs, artists, educators, politicians and engaged citizens.

Play the part of tourist in your new home

ow you have your feet underneath you and are settled at home in Durham. Or maybe you’ve lived here for years and want to get out of the house and try something new. One of the reasons we love living in Durham is that there are always ways to engage, learn, have fun and find community. Your first order of business should be picking the perfect place to stay, whether you’re planning a solo adventure to break your routine or want to take a practice run before the pressure’s on to impress friends and family visiting your new hometown.

TRIED & TRUE FAVORITES The Washington Duke Inn & Golf Club first opened its doors in 1988 to serve the communities of both Duke University

and Durham. The inn features beautiful terraces, an amazing golf course, and indoor/outdoor meeting, conference and wedding spaces. From there, you can easily explore Duke’s picturesque campus and numerous visitor attractions – the Nasher Museum of Art at Duke University, Sarah P. Duke Gardens, Duke University Chapel, the trails through Duke Forest and the Duke Basketball Museum & Sports Hall of Fame, to name a few, which are enjoyed by locals and travelers alike. There are plenty of great food options nearby, but the Fairview Dining Room or Bull Durham Bar located at the WaDuke never disappoint. Morehead Manor Bed & Breakfast opened to the public back in 1997 in a home originally built in the 1910s for the CEO of Liggett & Myers Tobacco Co. Refurbished with modern amenities, the Colonial Revival-style home is owned by innkeepers Daniel Edwards and Monica Edwards. The manor is Durham’s oldest Black-owned lodging property and is located within walking distance of downtown, the Durham Bulls Athletic Park, the Durham Performing Arts Center, the American Tobacco Trail and the historic Brightleaf District. 

Chris Bacugan has been with the Washington Duke Inn & Golf Club since 2008 and in his current role as a bell person since 2009. Up at 5:45 a.m. to make it to work just before 7 a.m., Chris is one of the first faces guests see.


STAYCATIONS BOUTIQUE STAYS IN THE CITY’S CENTER The Durham Hotel has a striking mid-century modern design and

unbeatable views of the city at its rooftop bar, The Roof at The Durham, which offers shared plates and thoughtfully designed beverages. The Restaurant at The Durham is a new American restaurant that has received national acclaim for thoughtfully curated seasonal dishes. Coffee sodas served at the hotel’s coffee shop are not to be missed before heading out to take on the day. Unscripted Durham is the newest boutique hotel to open in the Bull City and features a rooftop pool, iconic blue façade and a midcentury design. Check its website and plan your staycation around one of the programmed evenings, like “Dine & Vibes” every Friday and Saturday evening with local DJs or weekly happy hours with specialty cocktails at The Studio. If you stay at any of these properties, you’ll be just a few steps away from many of Durham’s delicious and unique places to eat, plus one-of-a-kind arts and entertainment venues. Search “Downtown Durham Walking Tour” on discoverdurham.com to find out how best to explore the city, whether you have just a few hours or a full afternoon. PHOTO COURTESY OF MOREHEAD MANOR

Conveniently located in the heart of downtown, three of Durham’s boutique hotels each offer something unique and are situated within just a block of one another. Park your car and appreciate the walkability of downtown for a full weekend. Stay at the 21c Museum Hotel and stroll through the thoughtprovoking contemporary art museum with a handcrafted cocktail in hand after dining at the Counting House restaurant. The former bank building is on the National Register of Historic Places and still has a vault you can explore in its basement.

Morehead Manor Bed & Breakfast is Durham’s oldest Black-owned lodging property.

ESCAPE THE BUSTLE

You’ll find the historic Arrowhead Inn bed and breakfast, positioned on six acres, is just a 15-minute drive north of downtown. Reserve a room in the Manor House or escape to the Garden Cottage or secluded North Carolina Cabin. Further remove yourself from the bustle by spending a morning or an afternoon outdoors at nearby Eno River State Park, Lake Michie, Falls Lake – or at Historic Stagville, one of three state historic sites located in Durham County. Complete your stay by enjoying a meal at nearby favorite restaurants, including Bleu Olive, Gocciolina, Bullock’s Bar-B-Cue and Picnic.

DURHAM 20/20

For those seniors looking to further their education, there’s the Osher Lifelong Learning Institute (OLLI) at Duke – the fourth largest OLLI in the country and one of the oldest, as it celebrates its 43rd anniversary this year. With 2,600 members and more than 300 instructors, the learning community offers more than 425 classes annually at more than 20 locations across Durham, Orange and Chatham counties. “We have men and women who moved here knowing no one, because they know they can make friends and build a community with people who share their values and love of learning,” says OLLI Director Chris McLeod. Durham is a magnet for professionals who may have relocated here for work, are parents of children who went to college in the area or who loved living in a big city. “Durham has the perks of a big city without many of the big city hassles,” Chris says. The participants at Duke’s OLLI consist of numerous retired faculty, authors and corporate executives – even former CIA agents – who are yearning for new connections and opportunities to share their passion and expertise. Our city consistently shows care and compassion for the older adults in our community. It is full of people and resources – some of which you can find in the sidebar below – that are passionate about providing assistance and fulfillment for seniors. – by Anna Elsasser

CITY OF MEDICINE The city’s moniker is more accurate than ever

urham has a reputation for outstanding health care. The nickname “City of Medicine” has its origins in the creation of BC Headache Powder by two local pharmacists in 1906. Fast forward 115 years, and our physician-to-population ratio is more than four times the national average, and in 2016, U.S. News & World Report named this region No. 3 on its list of cities with the greatest access to quality health care. Jobs in health care and social services make up nearly a third of the workforce, with Duke University & Health System as Durham’s largest employer. How did we earn renown for healing? It helps that our hospitals are top-notch. U.S. News & World Report named Duke University Hospital as the best hospital in North Carolina for 2020-2021. It is

nationally ranked in 11 adult and nine pediatric specialties and is rated high performing in 10 procedures and conditions. Duke is the cornerstone of Durham’s health hub, operating Duke Children’s Hospital, Duke Regional Hospital, Duke Cancer Institute, Lenox Baker Children’s Hospital and smaller practices across the city. Duke Regional Hospital is one of seven hospitals in North Carolina – and the only one in the Triangle – to receive five stars in the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services’ ratings program. The North Carolina Specialty Hospital also provides great care, while the Durham Veterans Administration Hospital serves more than 200,000 veterans from across 27 counties in central and eastern North Carolina. North Carolina Eye, Ear, Nose & Throat has operated in Durham since its founding by Dr. Samuel D. McPherson in 1914. Formerly McPherson Hospital, the facility’s physicians developed many of the instruments still used today to perform eye surgery, including specialized suture materials. Doctors affiliated with the practice performed the first cornea transplant in the southeastern United States. In 2021, U.S. News & World Report also ranked Duke’s School of Medicine No. 12 in the nation for research and No. 26 for primary


At 5 a.m., three days a week, clinical nurse Laryssa Thompson gets up to exercise and feed her pets before starting a 12-hour shift at 7 a.m. in the intensive care unit at Duke Regional Hospital. “I feel lucky to be part of the team that I’m on,” she says.

care. Seven of the school’s medical education specialty programs were also ranked in the top 10 nationwide: anesthesiology, internal medicine, pediatrics, psychiatry, radiology, obstetrics and gynecology, and surgery. Duke’s faculty roster has two Nobel Prizewinning researchers – biochemists Dr. Robert Lefkowitz and Dr. Paul Modrich. Dr. Shelley Hwang, chief of breast surgery at the Duke Cancer Institute, was recognized as one of TIME’s 100 most influential people in 2016. In 2018, Duke doctors performed the state’s first abdominal wall transplant; Duke researchers discovered how leukemia spreads to the brain; and the university teamed with Microsoft to set up a new research hub in downtown’s Chesterfield building to further work on health-based applications. Duke Clinical Research Institute is the country’s largest and oldest academic clinical research organization. There’s also the architectural gem of Duke Integrative Medicine, a beacon in the growing practice of holistic medicine. Research Triangle Park (RTP), the largest research park in the country – most of which is in Durham County, is home to 450-plus life sciences companies, including GlaxoSmithKline and Pharm-Olam. Drug giant Merck has a plant in north Durham, and IQVIA, one of the largest providers of biopharmaceutical services in the world, also calls Durham home. In fact, CBRE | Raleigh, a commercial real estate services company, released a research report in October 2020 that lists the Raleigh-Durham area as the No. 5 region in the nation for the life sciences. And the city’s entrepreneurial spirit is advancing health care, led by the likes of up-and-coming companies such as Validic, Vast Therapeutics, Forecast Health, G1 Therapeutics, and Precision BioSciences, a genome-editing company that, in 2019, opened a manufacturing center in RTP. It is the first in the U.S. dedicated to developing “genome-edited cancer therapy products.” 

or the 11th straight year, Durham Magazine commissioned a peer-to-peer survey of the local dental community – from endodontists to prosthodontists. The following listings are the result. Dentists were asked the telling question: “If you had a patient in need of a dentist, which dentist would you refer them to, other than yourself?” The Durham area is well-served by the dental community. Hundreds of dentists, specialists and support professionals have made this home, and the overall quality of dental care in our communities is second to none. What good dentist wouldn’t want to practice here?

n 2020, WalletHub recognized the Durham-Chapel Hill area as the fourth most-educated city in the U.S. for its second consecutive year and also ranked Durham No. 10 out of more than 150 similarly sized cities in its 2020 list of best midsize college cities. Durham is well-known for being a part of the “Research Triangle” in North Carolina, home to three major research universities. The presence of those and other colleges tends to drive up educational attainment in the area. Here’s a quick look at our city’s institutions of higher learning.

urham Tech offers popular programs and courses in a variety of industries and pathways. With campuses in Durham and Orange counties, the college provides health technology pathways, university transfer opportunities, career and technical programs and more. Durham Tech also offers retraining opportunities for new careers, teaches reading and writing and other basic high school skills, and gives high school students opportunities to earn college credits. The college launched the Durham Tech Small Business and Corporate Education Center in the redeveloped Chesterfield Building in late 2018. The Corporate Education department at Durham Tech offers continuing education and training to organizations covering topics including management and leadership development, interpersonal skills, communications, and employee health and safety. The Small Business Center at Durham Tech is part of the North Carolina Small Business Center Network and provides courses and advice on marketing, sales and business plans; technical assistance; and business seminars. In 2019, the college launched its Electrical Line Technician program and its Culinary Arts program at its new American Tobacco Campus location. John B. “J.B.” Buxton was named Durham Tech’s new president in June 2020, succeeding William “Bill” Ingram, who retired after serving as Durham Tech’s president for 12 years. Number of students 18,626 Tuition and fees $1,216 (in-state), $4,288 (out-of-state) for 16 or more credit hours Accolades Durham Tech sends more students to UNC-Chapel Hill and to N.C. Central University than any community college in the state. It was one of the first colleges to have guaranteed admission pathway agreements with UNC and N.C. State University. Durham Tech is the only school in the Triangle that offers an electrical line technician program, which was created in partnership with Duke Energy and launched in August 2018. That same year, Durham Tech also launched an anesthesia program (one of only 11 approved anesthesia programs in the nation, and the only one of its kind in the state).

EDUCATION GLOSSARY CHARTER SCHOOL Supported by public financing and authorized by the State Board of Education, charters are exempt from many standard public school administration regulations, are not affiliated with any religious group and do not charge tuition. Admission is via lottery rather than by neighborhood. Charter schools set their own curriculum and hire their own instructors, of whom 50% must be licensed. Charter schools may be run by independent parent boards, nonprofit organizations or for-profit education service firms. Charter students take North Carolina standardized End of Grade/End of Course tests and participate in the NC School Report Card program. COMMON CORE Common Core is a set of national grade-level goals for math and language arts, such as the ability to multiply two-digit numbers or write a paragraph. Common Core does not apply to science, social studies or other subjects. State and local authorities build local curriculums to meet Common Core goals. Generally, Common Core-based high schoollevel math classes compare to previous curriculums as: Math I: Equivalent to Algebra I, with a focus on linear and exponential equations. Math II: Equivalent to Geometry, with continued algebra, quadratic equations and probability. Math III: Equivalent to Algebra II, with logarithms, statistics and trigonometry. Unlike math, English common core classes – generally, English I, II and III – teach four basic skills at increasingly complex levels each year: Reading: How students read and comprehend written materials. Writing: Making logical arguments based on sound reasoning and relevant evidence. Speaking/Listening: Evaluating and presenting increasingly complex information, ideas and evidence. Language: Vocabulary and grammar. DIGITAL LEARNING COMPETENCIES Standards for grades K-12, designed to ensure equitable opportunity to learn throughout remote instruction. North Carolina has adopted the International Society for Technology in Education Standards for Students. E-LEARNING PROGRAM Mainly used to offer extended class options for accelerated high school and middle school students, offer learning alternatives and increase DPS high school graduation rates. The main purpose of e-learning is to provide students with class options that are not available in school. These courses can be utilized in school computer labs, remote locations and at home. EDUCATIONALLY DISADVANTAGED STUDENTS Students who are at risk based on socioeconomic or educational background.  END-OF-GRADE (EOG) TESTING/NC SCHOOL REPORT CARD Standardized tests administered to all public school students, including those in charter schools, at the end of grades third through eighth. High school students take End-ofCourse (EOC) tests after Math I, Biology and English II. Scores measure students’ readiness for advancement and are compiled into the NC School Report Card system, which assigns numerical and letter grades to schools based on achievement and growth (improvement).

INDEPENDENT (PRIVATE) SCHOOLS Almost 5,000 students in Durham attend independent schools, with close to 1,200 in Orange County and about 200 in Chatham. About two-thirds of North Carolina’s independent schools have a religious affiliation. Independent in finance and governance, these schools may follow any curriculum they wish, set their own standards for graduation, and are not required to participate in North Carolina standardized testing (EOGs) or the NC School Report Card program. They have the freedom to serve their distinct missions through their own philosophies, values and approaches to teaching. All must test third-, sixth-, ninth- and 11th-graders using nationally recognized standardized tests. Depending on family income, some independent school students may be eligible for state-subsidized voucher awards, known as Opportunity Scholarships. INDIVIDUALIZED EDUCATION PROGRAM (IEP) Special education programs created for children with disabilities to help them make “reasonable progress” in school, including passing from grade to grade. MAGNET SCHOOL Public, lottery application-based schools that aren’t associated with any particular neighborhood and may focus on unique academic curriculums or programs, such as language immersion, Montessori, international baccalaureate, STEM or the arts. Magnet schools take EOGs and participate in the NC School Report Card service. MONTESSORI A style of teaching, named after the Italian educator Maria Montessori, in which children teach themselves and have more control over their time and choice of topics they can explore. Classrooms are often composed of children of many ages and grades.   REMOTE INSTRUCTION Virtual classes, learning and interaction utilized by schools in lieu of traditional in-person instruction in order to provide education while minimizing risk of further spreading COVID-19. A school’s plans may include fully remote or hybrid models (a mix of remote and in-person instruction) until students can safely return to school. NCEdCloud as well as PowerSchool and Canvas are all online programs that North Carolina schools utilize to implement remote instruction. REMOTE INSTRUCTION PLAN  This plan outlines the tools, resources and requirements for remote instruction. STEM  Programs with core focuses in science, technology, engineering and mathematics to prepare students for college and other upperlevel studies in these fields.  • STEAM adds arts.  • STREAM adds reading or research and arts.    TRANSITIONAL KINDERGARTEN  Meant for 4- to 5-year-olds as a transition from a preschool or day care setting to an elementary school classroom. It is often a child’s first experience in a school and offers extra time for a child to develop intellectually, socially and emotionally before elementary school.
