Speakers included Duke professors Bruce Orenstein and Gunther Peck, Southern Coalition for Justice Policy analyst Fred McBride, Adrienne Harreveld of the Samuel Du Bois Cook Center on Social Equity at Duke, and recently-elected City Council member Jillian Johnson. The event was covered in the Duke Chronicle, and an ongoing petition seeks support from the Duke administration for an on-campus polling site.

SNCF looks forward to hosting similar teach-ins at colleges and universities across the state in the coming year. To bring an event to your campus, please contact John Steen at scholarsnc@gmail.com.
