WFSB 3 Connecticut
It was revealed this week that a school from Connecticut took their students on a field trip last November where the students reenacted slavery and had their teachers call them the N-word. The Hartford Magnet Trinity College Academy took a four-day filed trip to the Nature’s Classroom in Charlton, Massachusetts.
According to the parents, they were never told about the third day of the trip (when the reenactment took place).
The re-enactment included having the students pretend to be on a slave ship, pretend to pick cotton, pretend the teachers were their slave masters, yelling the n-word at them and chasing them through the woods.
Although the field trip took place back in November of last year, it is just now coming to light as parents are now starting a battle with the Hartford School Board about the trip.
