A video produced by Mohamad Chamas and Rahima Rahi, with guidance from Bruce Orenstein, Artist in Residence with the Samuel Dubois Cook Center On Social Equity, documents the Cook Center's Young Scholars Summer Research Institute.

The Young Scholars Summer Research Institute is sponsored by the Samuel DuBois Cook Center on Social Equity at Duke University in partnership with Durham Public Schools (DPS). It is a three-week program that provides middle and high-school students enrolled in DPS with training to enhance their research, writing and presentation skills while conducting their own investigations of the various facets of the problem of inequality. In keeping with the Samuel DuBois Cook Center’s central mission, the Young Scholars Summer Research Institute engages in the process of producing the next generation of researchers, scholars, and activists committed to the study of the causes and consequences of inequality and the preparing of strategies for social change. The program culminates the production of student research projects related to the varied causes and consequences of inequality and redesign of remedies for achieving equity and social justice.
