Race Dismissed



There’s been a spate of stories lately about the right’s attempts to block Black history education. To mention just one: An Ogden, Utah Montessori (!) school sent an opt-out form┬áto parents after receiving pushback to planned Black History Month activities. The letter, which the school sent “reluctantly,” according to the director, allowed families “to exercise their civil rights to not participate in Black History Month at the school.” Now there’s a new twist on civil rights!
