Durham Men: PPFA/BET Breast Party Ever
Here we see national organizations, NCCU, and the larger Durham community coming together to promote women’s health and wellness, especially breast cancer screening, in a fun and different way. What is special about this picture is that everyone in the frame is a man; yet this is a women’s health event. It shows that the community as a whole cares about young women and their health.
Early Voting – Midterm Elections
This is outside the early voting location in the Union on NCCU’s campus, and we can see a cross-section of the Durham community in the picture – old/young, black/white. This picture and the location of a polling station in a high-traffic, central location on the NCCU campus represents a couple of things: 1) The importance of voting for young people, especially to ensure women’s rights and access to things like contraception; and 2) Support for young people exercising their right to vote, especially when the legislature has made it more difficult.
