The leaders of the gentleman`s Agreement presented their concept last year to the National School Boards Association. They hope the program can be expanded to other districts in North Carolina and perhaps even across the country. Detavius was one of the young men in the group who offered to reflect on what it means for them to be part of the gentlemen`s agreement and how it changes their lives. It is because of the visit to Barton that Jaquam Artis says he wakes up every day and tries to “succeed better than me the day before”. Jaquam told attendees at the ceremony that he was inspired by Anthony Atkinson during Barton`s trip. Atkinson, a Barton graduate and member of the Harlem Globetrotters, helped lead Barton to an NCAA Division II national basketball championship. In February, the group enjoyed a visit to a men`s basketball game in Barton, and then in March they were spoiled by community supporters with a performance of “The King of Lions” at the Durham Performing Arts Center. Each young man was given a new shirt and tie that he could wear to what for many of them was the first time they had participated in a major theatrical program and left for the first time at DPAC.
