Q&A with author of The Dream Long Deferred, 5/31/23, 8:00PM, virtual and in person

The CharlotteEAST Education Committee is sponsoring an event to discuss The Dream Long Deferred, by Frye Gaillard, an award-winning author who covered school integration for the Charlotte Observer. The Dream Long Deferred tells the fifty-year story of the landmark struggle for desegregation in Charlotte, North Carolina, and the state of the city's public school system up to 2006 (when the 2nd ed. was published).

This book is thoroughly researched, beautifully written, filled with valuable history and information that we need to think critically about schools, schooling choices, and our role in building the community--especially the schools--we want for our children. You can find the book through CMLibrary, Park Road Books, and other booksellers.

All are welcome, so please pass along this invite to all who are committed to building strong schools for our community in East Charlotte.

Please join us in person at The Galilee Center, 3601 Central Ave., 28205 at 8:00pm on Wednesday, 5/31/23.

Or, join us virtually on zoom.
