North Carolina NAACP leaders say four arrests over a new diversity policy in the state's largest school district are only the beginning.
The group's president said at a news conference Wednesday the civil rights organization plans more protests, along with marches, workshops and community meetings.
The Rev. William Barber was one of four demonstrators arrested Tuesday at a meeting of the Wake County school board.
They face second-degree trespassing charges. NAACP attorney Al McSurely says the four want a trial and a chance to subpoena school board members.
The activists say the board will re-segregate county schools by scrapping a busing program that tried to achieve socioecnomic balance.
A call to the school board was not immediately returned.
