Topic: Segregation and racial disparities in America's public school systems

Guest: Katie Fuller, co-curator of "Race and Revolution," now at the August Wilson African American Cultural Center in Pittsburgh

How Topic Discussed: Sixty-five years after "Brown vs. Board of Education," American school systems are still divided along racial lines --- in fact, more segregated than at any time since the 1980s. Why has segregated schooling been so persistent in American history, despite efforts to change it? How does segregated schooling damage communities? What are the lessons we should be learning from history? How does segregation and racial bias persist in Pittsburgh-area public schools? What does the story of the Woodland Hills School District and the killing of Antwan Rose tell us about the continuing problem of segregation in American education?
