Trying to Get By: [Not] Making Ends Meet in North Carolina

The NC Justice Center and Center for Documentary Studies at Duke University invite you to:

Trying to Get By: [Not] Making Ends Meet in North Carolina

Trying to Get By is a visual exhibit of life earning low wages in North Carolina. The banners and short videos feature home health aides, house cleaners, fast food workers, and pre-k teachers speaking about their lives and work. These workers don’t have health care or paid time off, or are the victims of wage theft or abusive workplaces. The videos also feature a historical context for the struggles these hardworking North Carolinians face and the growing impact their collective organizing is starting to have.

Join the North Carolina Justice Center as we kick off the festival with a reception and special exhibit from the Samuel Dubois Center on Social Equity and the Center for Documentary Studies, both at Duke University.

The city of Rocky Mount will include this exhibit in their annual Juneteenth Community Empowerment Festival (click here for festival details).

Join us for this visual exhibit and reception, with catering provided by Prime Smokehouse, as part of Juneteenth celebration!
