What did UNC students think of Waka Flocka Flame?

For the 2018 Jubilee concert, Waka Flocka Flame performed in cold and rainy conditions. Despite the weather, some UNC students made the journey out to Hooker Fields to hear him perform with openers DJ Luke Nasty and Hollywood COLD. Staff writer Sara Pequeño asked five UNC students what they thought of Waka Flocka’s performance — or if they didn’t go, why not.

DREAMers paint the stories of undocumented immigrants in Durham exhibit

The Statue of Liberty has welcomed thousands of immigrants into the U.S. for over a century. Now, it also stands in works of art featured in Pleiades Arts that speak to the struggle immigrants to this country still face today.  “DREAMers: DACA, Deportation Defense, and the American Dream” is a visual art exhibit currently on display at Pleiades Arts. It is a collaboration between the studio, Alerta Migratoria NC and the NC Dream Coalition.
