Coordinator, Documentary Diversity Project
1317 W. Pettigrew St. L200
William is a proud Durham native and self-described book nerd (come talk with him about Octavia Butler!). At CDS, he coordinates the Documentary Diversity Project (DDP), an effort to promote greater racial diversity and equity within the documentary arts. His responsibilities include coordinating support for emerging and more-established documentary artists from marginalized groups enhancing their portfolios while in residence at CDS. He received a master’s degree in social work and a bachelor’s degree in sociology and African-American studies, both from UNC-CH. He receives lessons in listening and storytelling from countless friends, loved ones, and strangers. For these he is very grateful.
