You’re Invited! A Conversation About Education: Indianapolis Schools Divided
Join education reporters from Chalkbeat, WFYI and IndyStar in partnership with the Indianapolis Public Library to continue a community conversation and a recent series of articles examining why inequality and segregation persist in Indianapolis 60 years after the landmark Brown vs. Board of Education outlawed “separate by equal” schools — and solutions that could lead to change. Event details:
