Abstract:
Before Keith Scott’s death in September 2016, many may have suggested that racial relations had improved, citing as proof Charlotte’s schools becoming a model of desegregation. The protest after Scott’s death drove home another perception about black-white relations: they were more reminiscent of the Jim Crow era than the 1980s.

A couple who lost their daughter to domestic violence were inspired to help prevent others from experiencing their tragedy. Their goal was intentionally realized as the Jamie Kimble Scholarship, awarded to UNC-Chapel Hill PhD level students studying violence against women. Unexpected initiatives include the creation of high school domestic violence awareness clubs and a partnership with local companies to help employees experiencing domestic violence.

Abstract:
The Charlotte-Mecklenburg school system, cited as the most segregated in the state, is trying to make an integration comeback through programs such as pairing. Uniting schools such as Billingsville and Cotswold, it offers students from the metro’s poorer sections the same quality education those from more affluent areas have had. In the process, leaders hope this program can also help change Charlotte’s dismal socioeconomic ranking among the largest cities in the US.
