About the film and conversation:

I Am Not Going to Change 400 Years in Four is a moving docu-short film chronicling Satana Deberry’s historic victory to the Durham District Attorney’s office. D.A. Deberry is a progressive prosecutor who wants nothing more than to reduce violent crime in Durham. The office’s goals often collide with the need for safety and punishment, and the hunger for change. Following the screening, Deborah Holt Noel, senior producer and host of Black Issues Forum and North Carolina Weekend, will sit down with Durham District Attorney Satana Deberry for a virtual one-on-one conversation and audience Q & A. There will also be a special guest appearance by Larry Krasner, Philadelphia D.A., who is featured in the PBS docu-series Philly D.A. Krasner will join the conversation and answer your questions submitted via the chat feature.

This screening and discussion event is in association with PBS’s highly anticipated 8-part docuseries, Philly D.A., presented by Independent Lens. Philly D.A., a groundbreaking documentary series embedded inside the long shot election and tumultuous first term of Larry Krasner, Philadelphia’s unapologetic District Attorney, and his experiment to upend the criminal justice system from the inside out, which premiered on Tuesday, April 20, at 9pm on PBS NC. Watch episodes 3—8 on Tuesdays at 9pm from April 27–June 1 on PBS NC, the PBS video app and video.pbsnc.org.
