The More Things Change...

The U.S. Supreme Court decision that desegregated public schools was a landmark moment in the history of the nation and the civil rights movement. But 60 years later, it is clear that while progress has been made, African-American and low-income children are not receiving an equal level of education. Here the Obamas and other Black leaders opine on the opportunities they and others enjoyed as a result of the ruling and how far the nation has yet to go.  Joyce Jones (@BETpolitichick)
