Cover story gets attention

February 24, 2012

My phone has been ringing and we’ve received dozens of emails on the Feb. 23 cover “Black & White.” Much of their focus has been on education.

It is amazing that 43 years after Judge Arnow ordered the desegregation of Escambia County Public School the district only has 8 black principals. One minister told me, “At that rate, we will be 2055 before we have a mix of principals that reflects the demographics of the student population.”

Sort of gives a whole new meaning to the phrase: “Come to Pensacola and step back into time.”
