The news stories below are written by N.C. Central University students in Lisa Paulin's advanced reporting course, and by Campus Echo staff reporters.
The stories were first published with stories written by Jock Lauterer's community journalism students at UNC-Chapel Hill.
They were recently published alongside stories written by middle and high school students in a new online community newspaper, the Northeast Central Durham VOICE.
More VOICE stories will be published in future Campus Echo online and print editions
The VOICE – which can be seen in its entirety at http://durhamvoice.org – is the product of collaboration between the UNC-Chapel Hill's School of Journalism and Mass Communication and NCCU's Department of English and Mass Communication.
The project's many supporters include other UNC-Chapel Hill programs and departments, Durham city government and community organizations, and the Z. Smith Reynolds Foundation.
A full accounting of the "good souls" behind the Northeast Central Durham VOICE is provided in Jock Lauterer's acknowledgments. Lauterer is director of the Carolina Community Media Project in the School of Journalism and Mass Communication at UNC-Chapel Hill and the VOICE's co-adviser.
Two NCCU courses, advanced reporting and public issues reporting, will gradually become service learning courses in connection with the VOICE as NCCU mass communication majors begin to mentor Durham youth to become full-fledged VOICE reporters.
We hope you enjoy learning more about Northeast Central Durham through these stories.
