The ultimate outcome of the Wake County School Board elections are not totally clear yet — one more runoff vote will happen next Tuesday — but whatever happens, forces opposed to the re-segregationist crowd are beginning to organize in earnest. This Friday evening, NAACP activists will be holding a march and rally in Raleigh. Activists will gather at Moore Square Museums Magnet Middle School at 6:30 and then march to Martin Street Baptist Church (1001 E. Martin St.) where the NAACP will hold a meeting at 7pm. For more information, call 1-866-NCNAACP or 919-682-4700.
Indications are that this is just the beginning of a sustained effort to push back against any efforts to wreck the county’s nationally recognized and celebrated system.
