Event Details

  • 2021 marks the 50th anniversary of the Supreme Court’s landmark decision Swann v. Charlotte-Mecklenburg Board of Education (1971). This ruling made Charlotte, a segregated southern city, the nation’s test case for court-ordered busing, and eventually created one of the country’s most integrated school districts.

    Join us as we discuss present-day challenges and opportunities and reflect on the Swann case legacy. Dr. Pamela Grundy moderates a discussion alongside Arthur Griffin and James E. Ford. RSVP @ https://www.museumofthenewsouth.org/events/new-south-for-the-new-southerner-swann-case-legacy/
