NAACP Challenges NC School Re-Segregation

RALEIGH, NC - NAACP President and CEO Benjamin Todd Jealous; North Carolina NAACP State Conference President William Barber; Florida NAACP State Conference President Adora Obi-Nweze and representatives from over 2200 NAACP Branches and Units across the United States are gathering to address a growing problem of segregation in our nation's schools.

On the concluding day of the NAACP’s annual Daisy Bates Education Summit President and CEO Benjamin Todd Jealous will join North Carolina State Conference President William Barber, Florida State Conference President Adora Obi-Nweze and other NAACP officials in a press conference to discuss the current state of school de-segregation in the state, specifically Wake County, North Carolina. The Summit begins today ends Saturday, December 4th.

“Ending bussing to integrate schools and dwindling funding for public schools is the newest form of re-segregation. All children of all backgrounds, of all races, colors and creeds deserve an accessible, high quality public education. School boards across this country are rolling the clock back to the time before Brown vs. The Board of Education and the NAACP will not continue to let this happen,” stated NAACP President and CEO Benjamin Todd Jealous.

 

Founded in 1909, the NAACP is the nation's oldest and largest civil rights organization. Its members throughout the United States and the world are the premier advocates for civil rights in their communities, conducting voter mobilization and monitoring equal opportunity in the public and private sectors.
