Freed slaves, together with white sharecroppers, won universal, free, integrated public schools for the first time in U.S. history during the post-Civil War reconstruction era. Now, privatizers and budget-cutters want to take it all away. Come to an open discussion and celebration of the ongoing struggle to defend and improve free, quality public education.
