The Socio-Economic Divide

October 3, 2017

“The growing re-segregation, incarceration and miseducation of Black children and youth threaten to undo the hard earned racial and social progress of the Civil Rights Movement, disempower the Black community and usher in a second Post-Reconstruction Era. All Americans have a vital stake in moving forward rather than backwards. History teaches if racial apartheid happened before, it can happen again unless we are vigilant and address now the huge disparities Black and other poor children of color face.” – Marian Wright Edelman
