School that held offensive Black History Month lunch holds diversity assembly
Earlier we reported that a Bay Area private school had chosen to celebrate Black History Month by offering fried chicken, cornbread, and watermelon on the school’s lunch menu.
After offending many parents and making news, the school has apologized, and held an assembly to discuss the matter.
Students at Carondelet High School for Girls in Concord wanted to come up with ways to observe the occasion during a lunchtime celebration Friday. But when the school announced a menu of fried chicken, cornbread and watermelon, other students and parents became offended.
A letter of apology from the school’s principal was also sent to parents. A diversity assembly is planned for the future.
Thoughts on the apology and the upcoming diversity assembly?
