The Kindezi School In Atlanta Black History Program Receive Backlash After Blackface Performance
Parents are asking questions after school performance includes racist imagery.
“Y’all tell me…
Is this blackface?
Update: so this was a portion of my son’s black history program at Kindezi Old Fourth Ward (a majority black charter school in a quickly changing gentrified neighborhood). In this portion they were reciting Dunbar’s “We Wear the Mask”. This is a second grade class speaking on how blacks folks had to code switch just to be seen/treated somewhat humanely/or live, and someone at the school thought it a good idea to do this!! I’m livid and when I posted on the school’s page, comments were turned off.
I’m so over this world y’all!!”

“So this happened at my kids Black history program today. 🤦🏽♀️ Kindezi Old Forth Ward has to do better.
A lot of the moms are pissed and some are clueless.
The kids are second graders.”
