As a relative newcomer to Wilmington (and NC), many of your comments resonated with me. Even in 2017, issues of diversity at CFA apparently go unaddressed. In fact, I know of a Jewish family that pulled their son out of CFA as a result of the constant anti-Semitic harassment he was subjected to. Unfortunately, NC’s general lack of racial and gender sensitivity is well known, but the lack of basic diversity efforts are shocking. Given the recent reversals in our country’s social and political climate, I can’t say I’m optimistic regarding the potential for change, at least in the near term.
