45 Years, and Counting

I need to make something of this news story, but what? At any rate, Secretary Duncan did visit this Montgomery school this week. Seems like a good thing. How could it not be a good thing?

MONTGOMERY (AP) — Alabama’s Legislative Black Caucus on Saturday called on U.S. Education Secretary Arne Duncan to cancel a planned appearance at Robert E. Lee High School in Montgomery.

State Rep. Alvin Holmes said the school and its principal publicly opposed the Rev. Martin Luther King Jr. and the Selma-Montgomery march in 1965. Holmes said it was “insulting” to King and civil rights protesters that President Barack Obama’s top education aide was scheduled to appear at the school Monday.

“If he doesn’t cancel, we’re going to picket,” Holmes told The Associated Press.
