DURHAM, N.C. (WNCN) – Durham Public Faculties superintendent has responded to a photograph circulated social media that exhibits academics reenacting the toppling of a Accomplice monument on August 14.
Superintendent Bert L’Homme stated the photograph was taken after faculty hours and doesn’t mirror official Durham Public Faculties positions.
“The Durham Public Faculties Board of Schooling and I strongly help the free speech rights of DPS staff, as mirrored within the Board’s February 2016 decision. The photograph in query was taken August 23, after faculty hours, as a part of the Durham Affiliation of Educators’s weekly ‘Put on Pink for Ed’ advocacy,” L’Homme stated in a press release to CBS North Carolina.
On August 14, protesters pulled down a Accomplice monument in entrance of the previous Durham County Courthouse. Eight individuals have been arrested in reference to the incident.
