In Conversation with Durham District Attorney Satana Deberry — with a special appearance by Philadelphia District Attorney Larry Krasner
Join us for a special screening of I Am Not Going to Change 400 Years in Four, a moving docu-short film chronicling Satana Deberry's historic victory to the Durham District Attorney's office. D.A. Deberry is a progressive prosecutor who wants nothing more than to reduce violent crime in Durham. The office's goals often collide with the need for safety and punishment and the hunger for change.
Following the screening, Deborah Holt Noel, senior producer and host of Black Issues Forum and North Carolina Weekend, will sit down with Durham District Attorney Satana Deberry for a virtual one-on-one conversation and audience Q & A.
There will also be a special guest appearance by Larry Krasner, Philadelphia D.A., who is featured in the PBS docu-series, Philly D.A. Krasner will join the conversation and answer your questions submitted via the chat feature.
