NATION IN BRIEF : ALABAMA : Black Gets Interim Selma Schools Post

From Times Staff and Wire Reports

An all-white Selma Board of Education named James Carter, a black man, interim superintendent of schools. Carter was executive assistant to Norward Roussell, Selma’s first black superintendent, and had been filling in since Roussell’s failure to win contract renewal in December prompted strikes and demonstrations. The six board members agreed to give Carter the interim vacancy while they seek a replacement for Roussell, who resigned last week with a $150,000 settlement from the city.
