Woke MS High School Stages Walkout Over Racism


Students at Oak Grove High School held a walkout protest Friday morning.

Students said they walked out of class in protest after video surfaced of someone yelling “white power” at a school event.

“Seeing the kids that did walk out and had the courage to, it put some fire in me to make sure something gets done,” Oak Grove student Zaria Myers said. 

“Oak Grove is extremely reactive and never proactive,” student Faith Jones said. “When racist incidents happen, they don’t do anything about it. They try to cover it up and silence us.”
