NHCS civil suit: A 'missing' document uncovered, new allegations explained, and plaintiffs share their psychological struggles
The latest filing in the civil suit against New Hanover County Schools and former teacher Michael Earl Kelly includes three new plaintiffs, new allegations, and new documentation — including a parent's complaint from 2003, one the district initially said it didn't have a record of.
We meet a man who leads a local church and who volunteers on two foundations that support LGBTQ+ people and educational efforts. Rev. John McLaughlin talks about his work in the community, but he also shares his own story, which includes deep personal trauma. It’s that trauma that led him back to church and launched his search for a spiritual sanctuary where he could be gay and Christian.
Hosted by Ben Schachtman, Managing Editor of HQR News, the program is an opportunity for local officials and reporters -- the people who make news and the people who report it -- to talk about the issues that affect our community. Expect deeper dives and candid conversation.
