A federal court ruled earlier this year that two of North Carolina’s congressional districts, drawn in 2011, were unconstitutional because they were racially gerrymandered.  That case is to be argued before the U.S.

On the next CoastLine, a federal court has ruled that North Carolina’s congressional districts were gerrymandered with racial bias. As that case heads to the Supreme Court for appeal, we’ll explore independent methods of carving out districts. 

While Coastline and State of Things take a break on Thursday, November 24, we'll offer the following special programs on 91.3FM to make your Thanksgiving Day even more festive!

On the next CoastLine, Thanksgiving is just around the corner – and you know what that means. Black Friday. But what about Small Business Saturday? We’ll talk about its local economic impacts, and the unique gifts you can’t find at superstores.
