Sherri Holmes is the Founder and Director of the Triangle Friends of African American Arts, an organization that strives to expand awareness, understanding, and support of African and African-American arts.
Last week I was driving to work listening to the radio and an announcer said that Vogue magazine had just named the hippest city in North Carolina. Even before she told us, I knew the answer. Durham! In addition to the restaurants and historic districts mentioned in the Vogue article, I believe that African-American arts are an important part of Durham’s status as a mecca for culture.
