Civil Rights Movement Redux

Quite a few folks follow the woes of Montgomery’s school superintendent, Carlinda Purcell, via my blog. She’s under fire (as well as technically fired), and a local judge ordered the board of education and Dr. Purcell to mediate in order to reach a settlement. The parties have been on hiatus since last week. Talks are set to resume on Thursday.

Last evening Dexter Avenue King Memorial Baptist Church hosted a rally for Dr. Purcell’s supporters. This well orchestrated event was apparently well attended. I wasn’t there. I do hope to get into the school board meeting this evening and will report what happens there.
