“The Bulls of Durham” living history book project is quickly approaching it’s 2 year anniversary. Crazy to think it’s been two years of interviews, research and adventure already with 9 months to go until launch.
Over 100 individuals through the Bull City have been interviewed and in those interviews common threads became apparent. Keeping Durham Durham is on the minds of many. The concern that we’re losing the Durham magic that brought everyone here in the first place is came up in nearly every interview.
The concern is there and yet, it seems to many, that only a handful of Bull City entities are getting attention while so many incrediBULL people, places and things that can only be described as “Only in Durham,” go overlooked.
Many interviewees discussed how Durham, North Carolina has been a city where anyone can make something happen regardless of their bank account balance or level of formal education. There’s a strong feeling that’s slipping away at the same rate luxury apartments are going up.
Those concerns aren’t unfounded and haven’t fallen on deaf ears. I don’t want the completion of “The Bulls of Durham” to mark the end of the chapter where anything is possiBULL in Durham.
A city, our city, cannot live off of the hype.
Less talk, more shining light on the gems through out the Bull City that make Durham an absolute treasure.
