With Atlanta Public Schools proposing school closings, I sat down with Superintendent Meria Carstarphen for a long and far-ranging video interview on the district. AJC multimedia journalist Erica Hernandez broke the interview into nine short segments. (Two to three minutes.)

Here is a link to the first.

Here is a link to the second segment.

Here is a link to the fourth segment

I will share the rest over the next two weeks.

In this segment, Carstarphen addresses Atlanta’s history of inequities, which she describes as deep and wide.
