NAACP Head Banned From NC's Largest School System

Published July 16, 2010

RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) — Four civil rights activists arrested for protesting what they call a decision to resegregate North Carolina's largest school district have been barred from school property.

The News & Observer of Raleigh reported Thursday that Wake County school officials have warned the four protesters they will face legal action if they step on school property without permission.

The warning targets state NAACP president Rev. William Barber, Duke University historian Tim Tyson, and two others arrested June 15 on accusations they disrupted a school board meeting.

Barber planned to attend next week's school board meeting after a march protesting the school board's conservative majority's decision to end busing in favor of neighborhood schools.
