A school poster meant to honor Black History Month has been taken down and a student transferred. It happened at Lowell High School in San Francisco. Students were outraged by what was on that poster and walked out of school and to city hall.
Lowell is a highly academic school known to accept students primarily based on test scores and grades. But many students at Lowell tell ABC7 News that stereotypes are very much alive.
"We stand against racism and racist behavior," said Principal Andrew Ishibashi.
