Faith Fox, the mother of a Black ninth-grader, Jamel, at a private, mostly white school in Charlotte, N.C., said her son was expelled after she complained about the reading by students of August Wilson’s 1985 play “Fences” which deals with racism.

The play’s dialogue, she said, is inappropriate because of the amount of racial slurs used in it -- which would have been read and spoken by the white students.

“You can have the important conversations about race and segregation without destroying the confidence and self-esteem of your Black students and the Black population,” the mother, Faith Fox told The New York Times.
