Native Sun News: Honoring song ‘nixed’ at Chamberlain school

Here. An excerpt:

CHAMBERLAIN — Despite a letter coming from one of the biggest names in civil rights, the Chamberlain School Board still reaffirms its stand that the topic of an honoring song for graduates will “never” be allowed at their meetings.

In April, the Martin Luther King Jr. Center for Nonviolent Social Change in Atlanta sent a letter to the board in support of the honor song. Bernice King, daughter of civil rights icon Martin Luther King Jr., signed the letter.

Now the school board is being investigated for possible civil rights violations. The violation charges stem from the attempts made by James Cadwell and Lynn Hart to formally present a letter of support from the King Center of Atlanta, Georgia for the honor song.
