CONCORD (Los Angeles Times)-
The principal of an all-girls Christian private school in the Bay Area has apologized over a lunch menu supposedly intended to celebrate Black History Month that included cornbread, fried chicken and watermelon.
“I’d like to apologize for the announcement and any hurt this caused students, parents or community members,” Nancy Libby, principal at Carondelet High School for Girls in Concord, said in a letter to parents.
“Please know that at no time at Carondelet do we wish to perpetrate racial stereotypes,” Libby added.
According to Bay Area news outlets, students at the school were trying to come up with ways to mark the month with a lunchtime celebration.
