Black Teen Expelled from School After Dispute Over August Wilson’s ‘Fences’

December 18, 2020

A North Carolina Black teenager has been expelled from a predominately white private school after a dispute over the August Wilson play ‘Fences’

According to the New York Times, Faith Fox, who is a lawyer, was
opposed to her son’s ninth grade English class reading the August
Wilson play Fences. Students were going to read the play, which uses
the “n-word,” aloud.

An alternate lesson was reportedly provided for her son, but after
back and forth via email, the disagreement escalated. In another
incident, the mother claimed students were taken on a field trip to a
former slave plantation. Before Thanksgiving, the private school,
which is predominately white, expelled the student. The school said
the 14-year-old was expelled because of his mother.
