Sarah Caroline Thuesen, professor of history at Guilford College, expounds on her new book, 'Greater Than Equal: African American Struggles for Schools and Citizenship in North Carolina, 1919-1965'

  

The struggle for education equality in North Carolina was hard-fought for more than four decades.

It was not only a struggle for facilities that were equal to white schools, but a fight for integration and civic inclusion. Host Frank Stasio talks with Sarah Caroline Thuesen, author of “Greater Than Equal: African American Struggles for Schools and Citizenship in North Carolina, 1919-1965,” and a professor of history at Guilford College.
