A notable anniversary and a disturbing shift
Today marks the 56th anniversary of the Brown v. Board of Education ruling – a landmark Supreme Court decision that declared state laws establishing separate public schools for black and white students and denying black children equal educational opportunities unconstitutional.
But almost six decades later, the head of the North Carolina NAACP says there is a disturbing trend to resegregate some public schools.
This evening (Monday @ 7:00pm) the state NAACP will make a presentation it describes as the “historical, legal, political, and moral rationale” for fighting efforts to resegregate our public schools.
Rev. Barber appeared on “News & Views” with Chris Fitzsimon over the weekend to discuss the fight ahead in Wake County. To hear part of their interview, please click below:
