Durham residents discuss Duke findings on unsafe lead levels at parks in historically Black neighborhoods

Though the report was published internally at Duke in December of 2022, the community association of the Walltown neighborhood held a Durham-wide meeting on Monday to discuss the findings from the report. The meeting was held after a neighborhood resident discovered the thesis on their own, according to Brandon Williams, Trinity ‘06 and Divinity School ‘13 and another resident of Walltown.
