Residents at historic Hayti community one step closer to affordable housing
By Lora Lavigne, WRAL Durham reporter
DURHAM, N.C. — For several years, residents have been pushing for affordable housing in the historical Hayti community in Durham. As of Friday, they’re one step closer. But first, city leaders must hand over the land it owns to move forward with these efforts. Two plots of land on Grant St. could be up for grabs. Residents said walking past the empty field is a daily reminder of how long the historically-Black Hayti community has been neglected.
