Civil rights groups sue New Jersey to desegregate schools

Asbury Park Press

TRENTON, N.J. (AP) — A lawsuit filed by a civil rights coalition claims racial segregation in New Jersey schools persists more than six decades after the Supreme Court ruled the practice unconstitutional.

The Latino Action Network, the New Jersey chapter of the NAACP and others unveiled their lawsuit against the state Thursday. It was announced on the 64th anniversary of the Brown v. Board of Education ruling that struck down separate-but-equal schools.
