    I was deeply moved by the Hayti The Heritage Documentary Project, (trailer). It’s accurate portrayal visually and historically of that era as I remember it was on the money. My first job was shining shoes at Cox Barber Shop, on Pettigrew Street. Seeing entertainers enter and leave the Biltmore played a major role in my decision in choosing music as one of my career interests. I look forward to working with this concept and it’s further development in some capacity. http://www.myspace.com/alphonzakee

  • Great job Jaisun! I can’t wait to view the entire documentary. I have fond childhood memories of Pettigrew Street, the businesses, and especially my father taking us to the Regal Theater on “Jack Pot” night.

  • Vernelle Mack:

    Thanks for putting me in the loop. This is great…..I am excited now more than ever as I glad to be in on this. I tell my nieces and nephews about back-in-the-day all the time. Now they will get a chance to hear it from somebody else

  • Michael Eure:

    “This was great. I think this story will resonate throughout the country and beyond.”

  • Melody Ivins:

    “Powerful! Good job!”

  • Alphonza Kee Sr.:

    “Jaisun. You are getting closer and closer to the prize. You started off with a prospective of truth and excellence, and every revision gets better. Onward and Upward. Alphonza Kee”

  • Traci Wilson-kleekamp:

    “The country is suffering an identity crisis — it doesn’t surprise me that young and old alike would be unaware of their cultural roots. We are coming out of two decades of national self indulgence. Recent economic events have forced self reflection and introspection. Our country could benefit from a generation or two of “grounded” and spiritually mature (which not the same as religious) adults/communities.”

  • I want you to know I greatly admire your strength, courage and durability. Having conquered cancer, I am an exceptionally strong individual. However, I don’t know how I would react to the kind of monumental losses you have endured. Surely,the hand of a greater power is directing your steps.
    The Hayti project is a great project. The three of you, Kelvin and Victor, whom I have not met, are to be commended for taking on such a formidable task.

    Keep directing your thoughts, your vision, your hopes, your desires upwards; in other words, keep nothing but good stuff on your mind. The stronger you focus on the good,the more often you focus on the good, the sooner more good will show up in your life. Sounds simplistic, but that’s the way it works.
    Finally,I believe I can safely say this to you; success is just around the corner. With every available good wish…

  • Ronald Allen:

    I thought that the video was a wonderful depiction of the Hayti Community. Keep up this fantastic work and inspire others to know the rich history of African-Americans in the Bull City. Hayti truly was a pearl – lost in the reformation of a city so threatened by its entrepreneurship of middle-class Blacks. I am warmed by the memories, but saddened by the legacy of Urban Renewal.

  • As one that was born, raised and bred in Durham, NC, it has saddened me to see the Hayti that I knew vanish like puff of steam! This documentary sends my legs scurrying back down Pettigrew Street to the Regal Theater to hotdogs, popcorn and friends….now there stands a White-owned establishment. What happened and why did ‘WE’ let it happens? Though it is good to remember, it would be grander to prepare. What can ‘YOU’ do to stop them from taking our heritage, the sidewalks of our past and erasing it away? What happened to renovation for our Black community? What happened to “My dearest Hillside Senior High School!” Even more, why wasn’t it saved like Durham Senior High which by the way is a much older building? Thanks for the memories…but now what? ―VC Stone, an African-American Children’s Fantasy/Fiction Novelist
