The Dream Long Deferred tells the fifty-year story of the landmark struggle for the desegregation in Charlotte, North Carolina, and the present state of the city's public school system. Gaillard, who covered school integration for the Charlotte Observer, updates his earlier 1988 and 1999 editions of this work to examine the difficult circumstances of the present day.
