Durham DA to speak at Black August in the Park’s BOND*ference event

Durham District Attorney Satana Deberry.

Last week NC Policy Watch spoke with Durham District Attorney  Satana Deberry about the progressive changes she’s brought to her office and the results she’s already seen in the first six months.

This week, Deberry will be the guest for the At The Intersection podcast event as part of Durham’s fifth annual Black August in the Park.

Black August in the Park is an annual event hosted by the collective of the same name. The group calls the event  “reminiscent of a Black family reunion or a homecoming, with an additional emphasis on providing a platform for, and elevating the causes of social justice organizations.”

Deberry will speak live on Friday with hosts Marion Johnson and Brian Kennedy at part of BAP’s inaugural BOND*ference event.

Kennedy is a public policy analyst with the NC Budget and Tax Center, a project of the NC Justice Center, parent organization of NC Policy Watch.

Johnson, formerly of the NC Justice Center, is a public policy consultant with Frontline Solutions.

Their podcast, At The Intersection, investigates the intersection of policy, culture and identity. The show was recently a finalist for Best Local Podcast in Indyweek’s annual Best of the Triangle competition.

This year’s inaugural BOND*ference event is Friday, Aug. 9 from 1 p.m. to 5 p.m at the 21C Hotel at 111 North Corcoran Street in Durham.

Deberry will speak with At The Intersection from 4:15 p.m. to 5 p.m.
