Dean Smith and the Pluralist Commonwealth vision


I feel like a grew up in a strong community that had a coherent narrative. We were a progressive community that favored greater racial equality, greater education, greater tolerance and social progress, and we had a particular mission within the state of North Carolina to forward those ends. In the basketball team, with its living model of graceful team play and biracial cooperation, we had our symbolic representation of that narrative. (Independent Weekly)
