Last year, racist language interrupted the annual Black History Month assembly at Battle High School.
“During the actual assembly a young man had yelled out the N-word while someone was reciting a poem," senior Daimontre Yancy said. "This group of boys who happened to be white got up because they were asked by a black teacher to leave. They did not receive any consequences and were in class later on that day.”
The incident left some students disappointed.
