Across the country, students of color have been demanding change from their schools. At one Denver school, the push for a more inclusive and diverse curriculum came last year, from a group of African American high school students at Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Early College.
Black students at the joint middle school and high school say they didn’t see their history and culture reflected in the curriculum at a school that’s named after the civil rights leader.
The school’s principal, Kimberly Grayson, says that it was a trip to the National Museum of African American History and Culture in Washington, D.C., in October, that prompted a some of her high school students to demand revisions to their history curriculum.
