Resegregation trend continues: A new study by the Harvard Civil Rights Rights Project shows that schools today are as segregated as they were in 1969, a year after Martin Luther King's assassination. "Most schools in this country are overwhelmingly black or overwhelmingly white," said Elise Boddie of the NAACP. "We have still not committed ourselves as a country to the mandate of Brown versus Board of Education. If these trends are not reversed, we could easily find ourselves back to 1954."
