ATLANTA (WXIA) -- The newspaper staff at Atlanta’s Grady High School is calling for the removal of the school’s name.
The editorial in the latest issue of the Grady High School Southerner newspaper gets to the point in the first line: "Henry Woodfin Grady was a white supremacist."
The teen newspaper is calling for the removal of Grady's name with the headline: School needs more inclusive namesake.
"He (Grady) believed that the white race was superior to all others. I don't think in a community like ours that should be a name that we idolize," said Chloe Prendergast, a senior, one of four managing editors of the newspaper.
