in North Carolina, The Winston-Salem Forsyth County School Board of Education voted against a proposed mandatory African American history class.
The vote was 7-1 against the class even though during the four hour Council meeting, 28 people spoke in favor of the class, including one city council person.
Teachers complained that they teach British literature even though none of the students at the school are of British descent.
The seven board members who rejected the proposal say they needed more time and more data.
