Don't miss your opportunity to tune in to WXYC Reports this evening at 5pm!!
Tonight's program is a conversation between three women : filmmakers, community organizers, and expert chefs (especially when it comes to mole) : Jing Niu Sarah Lynn Garrahan and Nora Mendez.
The format is kind of like a story about a story- as we hear about their films Departing and Vida Propia- but you'll also hear a story about friendship, about incredible community organizing happening in Durham with The FARE Project, and some really smart and wise words from these three amazing women.
To top it all off: Tonight's program is multi-lingual in Spanish and English!
Please tune in!!!!
