Prayer vigil about Wake schools postponed

An Interfaith Prayer Vigil and a community meeting about the Wake county school system has been postponed in light of the bad weather expected to descend upon the Raleigh area tonight.

The state chapter of the NAACP had been planning to hold the vigil and meeting at the Martin Street Baptist Church at 7 p.m. tonight.

No rescheduling date has been set.

The Rev. William J. Barber, the president of the state NAACP, is expected to announce the new date for the vigil on Wednesday.

We’ll pass that new date on to Policy Watch readers as soon as we hear.
