Women's Liberation Movement
Dre talks to Rainbow and insists that she should have taken his last name when they got married. Rainbow cites that doing so would go against her feminist ideals because it enforces that women and men are not equal, which she clarifies is the view held by feminists. By reverting to old tradition, Rainbow fears that she would do a disservice to herself and all the women who came before her that made strides to bolster future generations of women.
Dre gives an overview of the history of the United States public education system as it relates to segregation and opportunity for black students. He highlights the landmark Brown v. Board of Education case and how it forced schools to integrate. He also mentions the positive impact of integration on academic achievement and expresses disappointment that schools have become more segregated than ever since the overturn of the mandatory integration ruling.
