The June/July issue celebrates both beauty and courage.
Our cover girl is Jasmine Roseboro, photographed beautifully at Duke Gardens by Mackenzie Brough with help from Brandy Bonaparte (makeup); Gia Peebles of Aura Salon & Boutique (hair); art director Maxine Mills and stylist Jennifer Sanicola Elkin. Jasmine did an amazing job modeling clothes and accessories from myriad Durham retailers. Check it out to know what's cool for summer, and where you can get it!
On a more serious note, we profiled Kerry Sutton, the unlikely Durham attorney who stepped forward to carry out the unenviable and professionally risky task of pursuing District Attorney Tracey Cline's removal from office. Read about why she felt she had to take action, putting her own career and reputation on the line, and how the Durham legal community reacted.
This issue also features our annual retirement guide, which contains in-their-own-words recollections from two fascinating Durham seniors. Jean Bradley Anderson tells how a Philadelphia girl came to literally write the book on Durham, and John Dancy discusses his years traveling the globe and making waves on Capitol Hill as a correspondent for NBC.
Amanda MacLaren and photographer Briana Brough paid a visit to the home of Phoebe Lawless of Scratch for a simple, delicious meal. Among other things, we learned that, in addition to the pies and pastries that have made her famous, the lady makes a MEAN fried chicken.
All that plus a fabulous kid-friendly home, spotlights of G2B and Surf Club, an outstanding student at Durham Academy, a made-in-Durham iPhone app that will make you never want to go to the grocery store again and much, much more.
Mags will be hitting mailboxes soon and are available on newsstands at Sam's Quik Shop, Whole Foods, The Regulator Bookshop, Parker & Otis, Barnes & Noble, Food Lion and Harris Teeter.
