This event is no longer on sale.

Tuesday August 31

7:00 PM  –  8:00 PM

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.
