On Feb. 23, Sarasota County Bar Association hosted an interactive panel discussion of the history and current status of efforts to bring racial equality to the Sarasota County school system. Personal testimony was provided from affected students surrounding the county’s initiatives in the 1960s in the aftermath of Brown vs. Board of Education, the 1971 determination that Sarasota’s schools were “fully integrated,” and the inherent limits of that determination both then and now.
