- a highschool story.When I was in high school in the late 80s we learned about Jim Crow and Loving v the State of Virginia. One of my classmates at the time noticed that it was only 20 years ago.

" I believe we hold in our hands the power once again to shape not only our own but the nation's future -- a future that is based on developing an agenda that radically challenges limitations in our economic development, educational achievement and political empowerment."
