The state NAACP has called an urgent meeting for Sunday to discuss the latest actions of the Wake County school board.
According to a flier posted on Bob Geary's blog on the Independent, the Sunday forum asks “What is the Nature of the Threat of Re-Segregation Raised by 5 out of 9 Wake School Board Members?"
The flier includes the phrase "We Will Never Go Back!"
The meeting is at 5 p.m. at the Martin Street Baptist Church, 1001 East Martin Street in Raleigh.
The meeting is being called by the Rev. William Barber and presidents of three Wake County chapters of the NAACP. Those three local chapters are among the members of the Great Schools in Wake Coalition that's anti-new school board majority.
The state NAACP has previously threatened to sue if it feels the new school board's policies lead to resegregation. Barber's request to make a 45-minute presentation at a January school board meeting was rejected by school board chairman Ron Margiotta.
