Barber Allowed Back Inside N.C. General Assembly Building

The Rev. William Barber, civil rights activist and former head of the North Carolina NAACP, has been allowed back inside the state’s legislative building following a Wake County judge’s decision that the state could no longer ban his presence.

Barber, also architect of the state’s “Moral Monday” protests, was barred from the building as part of conditions of his release following his arrest for a series of protests at the general assembly in 2017.

“State is on record saying that one reason they didn’t want me to come back was concern that I might attend May 1 teacher event & cause more people to attend,” Barber posted late Monday on his Twitter account. “This is profiling & it was overruled today.”
