The Independent Weekly 20th Anniversary

Looking back


Here's what The Indy was writing about the week of Sept. 17:

5 years ago: Afefe Tyehimba examined the growing number of afrocentric schools in the state and the issues that surround them -- the effects of Brown v. Board of Education, questions of black identity and the public funding these schools receive.

10 years ago: Lucy Haagen checked in with award-winning teachers who gave up the profession to follow other careers because of lack of classroom autonomy and low pay.

20 years ago: Steve Schewel chronicled the events of the 58th Annual North Carolina Debutante Ball, in which more than 200 young women presented themselves to North Carolina society.
