The women of Columbia's Silver and Gold group have been friends since their days at a segregated Douglass School. Looking back over the more than 50 years they've known each other, they describe the profound societal changes they've witnessed.
In the story, the Silver and Gold members say that in Columbia today, the racial divide is more subtle but still absolutely present. They see evidence of it in Columbia's institutions and governments, and also in how people interact with each other.
We'd like to hear your perspective on the issue of racial divisions.
