Greensboro City Attorney Steps Down

The International Civil Rights Center and Museum faces ongoing financial struggles, and the Greensboro mayor wants the city to take it over.

City officials announced the resignation of Mujeeb Shah-Khan Friday evening. The announcement comes after a week in which many questions have emerged over a payment the city made to the civil rights museum.

Here's what we know:

  • The museum asked the city for financial help last fall.
  • The city allocated a $750,000 payment to the museum in October.
  • The money was supposed to be part of a loan, but it was determined last week the funds went out without a loan agreement ever having been finalized.
  • The civil rights museum has struggled to break even and gain visitors since opening four years ago.

Shah-Khan has been with the city since May of 2012. He will be paid a half of his $166,000 annual salary as a severance package. The city has still not finalized a loan agreement with the museum. City leaders agreed to provide a total of 1.5 million dollars to the struggling museum.
