ALLEGANY COUNTY, MD – A group of black leaders is going before the Allegany County School Board to request an all-out ban of the Confederate flag.
Back in February, the principal of Fort Hill High School banned the flag from being displayed on school grounds amid major racial tension that led to several student suspensions.
Tuesday night, a group of community and church leaders plans to ask the school board for a permanent, county-wide ban of the Confederate flag in all public schools.
This is the board’s final meeting of the school year.
