Confronted by activists over Prior Lake incident, school board members walk out

 

November 23, 2021



Members of the Prior Lake-Savage Area School Board walked out of a special meeting Monday night when tearful students and raucous activists confronted them about what they describe as a racist culture within the school district.

Students and activists have been protesting since earlier this month, when a video showing two Prior Lake students using a racial slur to harass a Black student went viral.

Eden Alemu, a junior and vice president of the high school's Black Student Union, said it was not the first time she has spoken at a school board meeting about racism.
