Segregation in Orangeburg-Wilkinson #PurpleLiving #Episode4

Segregation in Orangeburg-Wilkinson #PurpleLiving #Episode4

In Orangeburg, South Carolina, white kids don’t go to school with black kids.

More than half a century has passed since American schools were officially integrated, but in Orangeburg there are two schools: Orangeburg Prep (OP), which is 95% white, and Orangeburg-Wilkinson (OW), which is 98% African-American.

Among the 2% at OW is Mykenzie Free. She moved last year from OP.

For both Mykenzie and her mother, Linda, their unusual decision was about trying to make a difference.
