County Executive Ike Leggett will participate in the Peerless Rockville event to kick-off off their spring education series. This year’s theme is "Emancipation to Integration: 150 Years of Advancement in Educational Equality."
This exhibit and series celebrates the fight for educational equality in Rockville with monthly programs that will highlight the efforts of the local African-American community to secure quality educational opportunities for their children after emancipation, through the
challenges of separate and unequal segregated schools, and the experiences of desegregation following Brown vs. Board of Education.
