A Florida School Board Will Rename Six Schools That Honor Confederates

After an almost year-long campaign and debates led by grassroots racial justice organizations (like the Northside Coalition of Jacksonville), the Duval County School Board in Jacksonville, Florida has voted to change the names of six schools currently named after figures prominent in the Confederacy during the U.S. Civil War.

Stuart Middle School will become Westside Middle School and Robert E. Lee High School will renamed Riverside High.
