Administrative History

Swann Fellowship was formed in 1997 by members of several Charlotte religious congregations, the Fellowship focuses on being a witness to the value of diversity, and educating the public on public school issues as they relate to this and allied subjects.

The Swann Fellowship was named for Darius and Vera Swann, who on behalf of their son James became the lead plaintiffs in Swann vs. Mecklenburg in the 1960s. Darius Swann was the first African American Presbyterian missionary ever assigned outside of Africa.

The mission of the Fellowship is to challenge the people of Charlotte-Mecklenburg to demand, sustain and send their children to a quality, equitable, integrated public school system; to inform and educate all people on that task; to provide forums for dialogue about diversity, excellence and equity; and to collaborate with other groups.
