The Florida College Board has revised an optional Advanced Placement Studies Course that was rejected last month according to the New York Times. Several historic black scholars, authors, and artists and their works were removed from the course and replaced with Black conservatism which will now be offered as a research project.
apparently these are scholars the college board removed from the AfAm studies AP…frustrating to see so many friends, mentors, and scholars I respect and cite on this list. pic.twitter.com/g65kkE5xd9

Attorney Benjamin Crump has announced a possible lawsuit against the state of Florida and Governor Ron Desantis.
Today students and elected officials will join attorney Craig Whisenhunt and me to announce plans to sue Gov. Ron DeSantis and the State of Florida for blocking the AP African American Studies course from being taught in Florida high schools. Students must be allowed to learn!
