Swann and School Segregation in Charlotte

Supports one of a series of events across the state that extend the impact of articles published by Scalawag, Education NC, and Charlotte magazine, examining the state of diversity and equity in North Carolina public schools. This series is presented on the 45th anniversary of Swann v. Charlotte-Mecklenburg County, the Supreme Court case that led to busing in public schools across the county as a means of integration. NCHC funds supports an "unconference" at the Levine Museum of the New South in Charlotte where a very diverse audience will be able to actively engage in conversation about the topic. Partners include the Levine Museum of the New South, MeckEd, Community Building Initiative, EdNC, Charlotte magazine, Jamie Kirk Hahn Foundation as well as students in the Charlotte Youth Council.
