@TodayIn1963, the newest project from NPR’s Code Switch.
All summer long, Code Switch will be following events from the landmark summer of 1963. 50 years ago was a pivotal moment in history, where the sparks of the Civil Rights movement caught flame, and the fire forged a new era in American history.
Today in 1963, The Supreme Court upheld the separation of Church and State in Abington School District v. Schempp. As the U.S. waits for more Civil Rights decisions from the SCOTUS before its summer recess, we’re reminded of where we came from…starting the summer of 1963.
