RALEIGH (WTVD) — The North Carolina NAACP said Tuesday it plans a “Mass Meeting” on Tuesday May 17 at 7 p.m. at the Martin Street Baptist Church.

State NAACP President Rev. Dr. William J. Barber said he will present research on the Wake County School Board’s proposal for community based schools.

Monday is also the anniversary of the landmark Brown v. Board of Education Supreme Court ruling that desegregated schools across the country 56 years ago.

“It was wrong then and it is wrong today,” said Barber.

Barber says the school board’s plan to do away with the current socio-economic diversity busing policy currently in place in Wake County is unconstitutional and morally wrong.

“It is time that all citizens of Wake County and throughout North Carolina join together and lead us toward the sane, sensible, research-based and constitutional educational policies that really will help educate all of our children,” said Barber.
