Students: Remove white supremacist's name from high school

ATLANTA — Students at an Atlanta high school want to rename their school because its namesake was a 19th century newspaper editor who endorsed white supremacy. The Atlanta Journal-Constitutions reports students at Henry W. Grady High School submitted a petition to the school board on Feb. 3 requesting a name change for the school. Grady was an editor and part-owner of The Atlanta Constitution, and he promoted white supremacy. Students say they want a more inclusive environment. They suggested journalist Ida B. Wells and civil rights attorney Donald Lee Hollowell as potential names for the school. The Atlanta School Board says they are reviewing the petition.
