Dr. Sonya Horsford shares history of CCSD's integration

Vegas PBS and CCSD’s Equity and Diversity Education Department held a Teacher Event on October 7 at Chaparral High School. Keynote speaker was Dr. Sonya Douglass Horsford (shown here), a highly regarded scholar on education and a member of our Community Advisory Board. Her presentation, Freedom Struggle for Equal Education, 1968 – 1994, provided a local context to desegregation and integration of Clark County School District during that time period. The afternoon also introduced a new PBS series, The African Americans with Henry Louis Gates, Jr., to begin locally airing October 22.
