FYI: Walkertown Area Historic Society to present Race and Education in North Carolina

The following was presented for your information by the Walkertown Area Historic Society

The Walkertown Area Historic Society is pleased to present an opportunity on Tuesday, March 21 at 6:30 to hear John E Batchelor discuss his new book and life experiences on “Race and Education in North Carolina”.

The presentation will be held in the Walkertown Public Library – it’s free and open to the public.

Drawing from case law, newspapers, interviews with policy makers, civil rights leaders, and unused archival material, Race and Education in North Carolina presents a richly textured history of the legal and political factors that informed, obstructed, and finally cleared the way for desegregation in the North Carolina public education system.

John E. Batchelor retired from the NC school system after thirty years as a teacher and administrator.
