“Indian Group Will Protest Policies of School Board.” Robesonian 17 April 1964.
A group of Indian citizens, chaired by Curt Locklear, was expected to meet with the Robeson County Board of Education to request improvements in the county school system. A similar group met with county commissioners on March 2, filing a protest. The group wanted equal school facilities for Indians (in particular, facilities that would meet Southern Association of Secondary Schools and Colleges standards) and wanted Indians in top administrative positions in the school system. A delegration, led by Dr. Martin Brooks, also met with the state board of education in Raleigh (see Robesonian 4 Sept. 1964; PSU-MLL. PSU Clippings File).
