Peace(ful) Protest: Preserving the Peace College Legacy...

July 29, 2011
Many of you may know that I am a proud Class of 2004 Peace College graduate. Peace is a women’s liberal arts college located in the heart of downtown Raleigh, North Carolina, founded in 1854 by William Peace. On Thursday, July 21, 2011 the current president and Board of Trustees announced that the school would 1) change it’s name to William Peace University and 2) become co-ed beginning Fall 2012.

While serving “jury duty,” I did not have my camera on me. Downtown Durham is not exactly the safest of places, and I thought that the taking pictures of people in the waiting room or even around the courthouse might be frowned upon. Needless to say, I was anxious to pick up my camera last night and since I’ve had my Scavenger Hunt photos done for several days now (I wasn’t sure what to expect, so I did a lot of writing on Monday and Tuesday), I decided to photograph to photograph my Valentine’s flowers…macro style. All of the pinks, greens and white just...
