I recently spoke at the Ribbon Cutting for the L. Douglas Wilder School of Government and Public Affairs at VCU. At that time, I said I remembered when I could not come into the building and be seated at the soda fountain. The recent experience related in “Teaching While Black” at VCU is shocking. Is this what we have 50 years after the school was founded?
