Duluth Students Walk Out of Class to Demonstrate Against Racism

Students from Marshall and East High Schools took a stand against hatred of all kinds in a demonstration.

Duluth East and Marshall students spoke out against racism and took a stand against hatred.

The students walked out of class in a demonstration. They said while they applaud the efforts the school is making, they felt it was up to them to make a difference.

“I think just as a whole and even as a community, we need to work on teaching each other about ourselves and who we are,” said Alayah Johnson-Jennings, a senior at Marshall.

The students walked to the corner of Central Entrance and Rice Lake Road.

Some students said they lost credit for some assignments because of their demonstration.
