The state NAACP has announced that an interfaith prayer vigil and community mass meeting on Wake County schools will be held Tuesday night.
The event will run from 7-8 p.m. at Martin Street Baptist Church, 1001 E. Martin St. in Raleigh. The last event was postponed because of the snow.
The prayer vigil will take place after the school board will likely have decided Tuesday on whether to cooperate with the AdvancED accreditation review that was sparked by an complaint from the NAACP. The board will also have spent the day working on the 2011-12 student reassignment plan.
According to a statement Friday from the Rev. William Barber, president of he state NAACP, the purpose of the prayer vigil is to bring people together "to renew the broad commitment to constitutional, well-funded, diverse public schools for all children in Wake County and throughout North Carolina."
