The Justice Department says a settlement agreement will ensure black students have better access to a Louisiana public school that only enrolled white students when it opened more than a century ago.

The settlement approved Tuesday by a federal judge is designed to resolve lingering desegregation issues at the A.E. Phillips Laboratory School, a school for young children that Louisiana Tech University operates on its Lincoln Parish campus.

The school, which serves students from kindergarten through 8th grade, was first ordered to desegregate in 1984.

In today's world of mass production, many products seem to be manufactured in other parts of the world. Louisiana Tech University is showcasing products and ideas created in north Louisiana.

"You've probably heard it said that we don't make anything in America anymore, and that it's all made somewhere else -- and there is some truth to that. But here in north Louisiana we make a lot of things, and we decided that we wanted to put together a calendar of activities and events showing off things that people make," explains Chief Innovation Officer Dr. Dave Norris.
