On Friday, February 15th at 7 PM, Carmichael's welcomes journalist and Louisville native Sarah Garland for a discussion of her new book "Divided We Fail : The Story of an African American Community That Ended the Era of School Desegregation."

In 2007, a court case originally filed in Louisville, was argued before the Supreme Court and officially ended the era of school desegregation— both changing how schools across America handle race and undermining the most important civil rights cases of the last century. Of course, this wasn’t the first federal lawsuit to challenge school desegregation. But it was the first—and only—one brought by African Americans.

In "Divided We Fail," Sarah Garland deftly and sensitively tells the stories of the families and individuals who fought for and against desegregation. Please join us for this very important and timely event.
