Nashville school labels ‘white only’ & ‘black only’ water fountains & doors for Black History Month

Share this article...

Parents and students are concerned that a Black History display in the hallways of Pearl-Cohn High School may have went too far for their comfort. As part of a project, students labeled doors as ‘colored entrance’ and ‘white entrance’, and nearby water fountains as ‘black only’ and ‘white only’. Images of the hallways are below.

A school employee says it was part of a ‘door contest’ for Black History month, but parents say teachers let it go too far. School administration has not yet responded to our requests for additional information.
