Didn’t we solve this problem? Why American schools are still segregated by race.
As we celebrate the birthday of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., and his dream that “former slaves and the sons of former slave owners will be able to sit down together at the table of brotherhood,” we need to pause and take a long, hard and honest look at the current state of racial segregation in American schools. School segregation is now at its most extreme since the 1960s, and growing more pronounced each year. Didn’t Brown vs. the Board of Education settle this issue in 1954? This podcast will detail the very real, legal, de jure (as opposed to “de facto,” as it is often erroneously taught) reasons why MLK’s dream has not yet been realized in American schools, as well as some ideas for changing that for the better.
