CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) _ The North Carolina chapter of the NAACP and others groups are protesting to show their opposition to the resegregation of schools in the Charlotte-Mecklenburg system.
The NAACP is sponsoring a march Saturday morning at Marshall Park against “academic genocide,'' a phrase that a state judge has used to describe what's happening in the Halifax County system in North Carolina.
The NAACP says Charlotte-Mecklenburg school leaders are now putting low-income students into the same schools.
Also Saturday, the Fayetteville branch of the NAACP is holding a rally to discuss several issues, including public schools and education funding. Other issues include voter disenfranchisement and the searching of black people by police at traffic stops.
