(02/22/22 4:05am)

All eyes may have been on the second-to-last men’s basketball home game of the Krzyzewski era, but perhaps they should–at least momentarily–have been turned a couple hundred yards away from Cameron Indoor Stadium to recognize the absolute masterclass put on by Duke on this beautiful late-winter day in Durham.

(02/23/22 3:52am)

After a disappointing 4-2 loss to 10th-ranked Kentucky six days prior, Duke bounced back with a 4-2 win against Illinois Saturday. A major struggle for the team had been its doubles play, as the team had lost the doubles point in four straight matchups heading into Saturday afternoon’s bout against the Fighting Illini.

The seventh-ranked Blue Devils roll into Charlottesville, Va., for yet another rematch—and revenge game—after getting sunk by a last-second Virginia 3-pointer in the first bout between the teams. Before the Wednesday night game, the Blue Zone has a player to watch for on both sides:

De Jesus shines in Duke women's basketball's win against Clemson

(02/21/22 4:32pm)

CLEMSON, S.C.—When a team shoots outshoots its opposition 47% to 37% and dominates the interior 36 paint points to 22, one may expect the result to be a comfortable, lopsided victory. However, the reality Sunday afternoon in Clemson for the Blue Devil’s was a far more exhilarating crossing of the finish line. Up nine, with two minutes remaining in the game, the hare relaxed early and began snoozing. Fortunately for Duke, in this instance, they woke up in time to stop the tortoise from completing a demoralizing comeback and stunning upset.

Durham, North Carolina’s roots lie in its history as a beacon of diversity and economic prosperity. Following the 1898 Wilmington Massacre in which white nationalists attempted to regain control of Wilmington through the destruction of Black businesses, many Black residents retreated into Black neighborhoods. For Durham, this retreat signified the growth of Black industry.

Durham’s Parrish Street neighborhood soon became known as “Black Wall Street” and made Durham the “Capital of the Black Middle Class.”

(02/21/22 2:00pm)

With Oscar nominations all over the media, it is easy to overlook anything film-related happening on the local front. However, the 23rd iteration of the Nevermore Film Festival, presented by Durham’s own Carolina Theatre, is a bona fide local institution that is not to be missed by anyone with a love of film — or just a free weekend. 

Remembering Betty Davis, Durham's own Queen of Funk

(02/21/22 1:00pm)

When new genres enter the musical canon, they’re often thought of in terms of preexisting genres and artists: hip-hop started by sampling disco tracks, country has its roots in gospel and folk songs and pop-punk and rap-rock are conveniently named after these combinations. Unlike these seemingly arithmetic fusions, though, the musical product is often greater than the sum of their parts. And no artist represents this better than the late Durham-born funk icon Betty Davis.
