Parents take Black Panther concerns to South Washington County School Board

Email

Woodbury resident Steve Ellenwood said a recent East Ridge High School morning announcement that included a Black Panther poem recitation as part of Black History Month is "Marxist indoctrination" that honored a violent organization.

Ellenwood and about 10 parents showed up at the Thursday, Feb. 21, District 833 School Board meeting to voice outrage over what students said during Feb. 14 morning announcements at East Ridge.
