  • WUNC's Will Michaels examines how an early morning fire in Chapel Hill on May 12, 1996 changed the trajectory of dozens of lives and became a catalyst for change in fire safety ordinances across the country.

Those funders – public and private – are just beginning to see the systemic racism built into how we pay for colleges, and small steps are being taken to right past wrongs. Host Dave DeWitt speaks with Liz Schlemmer, WUNC's education reporter, about that history, and how one school – North Carolina A&T State University – is setting fundraising records, and how administrators and advocates hope to build on recent successes.
