misc_none 6:00 PM Documentary Screening and Discussion: The Brick School Legacy (2003)   Download Event Info Tell a Friend
    Contact: Lawrence Programs   609-989-6920   lawprogs@mcl.org
   

The screening of this award-winning documentary on the history of the Joseph Keasbey Brick School and Junior College, a Black school that operated in North Carolina from 1985-1933, will be followed by a discussion with its producer Dr. Willa Cofield, currently 88-years old. A native of North Carolina, Dr. Cofield worked as a high school teacher until 1964 when she was fired as a result of her involvement in the struggle for civil rights. In a benchmark case, she sued both the city and the Board of Education in federal court, and her teaching job was restored, prompting school boards throughout the South to abort efforts to fire Black teachers. After earning two graduate degrees at Rutgers University, she moved to New Jersey in 1980 and worked in the New Jersey Department of Education’s Office of Equal Educational Opportunity. In 1983, she co-founded the Black Women’s History Conference – an organization that sponsored annual conferences for almost 20 years. Registration is suggested.
