Mt. Hebron High School

Mt. Hebron High School

Last week, students at Mount Hebron High School in Howard County, Maryland staged a walk-out during class in protest of what they call a culture of racism in their halls. The protest was triggered by a headline-grabbing incident: a video showed up online of a white, male student’s racist rant at a party. Kojo explores what happened and how activism is playing out not just at colleges and in city streets- but in the halls of local high schools.
