Philly elementary students forced to celebrate 'black communism' in class

The school itself has a history of promoting radicalism, and it is home to murals celebrating communist and Black Panther figures such as Davis and Huey P. Newton.

An elementary school teacher in Philadelphia forced her students to celebrate "black communism" and participate in a mock black power rally in honour of the radical political activist Angela Davis, City Journal reports.

Students at the William D. Kelley School were instructed to praise Angela Davis for her commitment to fighting "injustice and inequality" and discuss her role in promoting "black communism."

Davis, a lifelong Marxist, received the Lenin Peace Prize from the Soviet Union and was the Vice Presidential candidate for the Communist Party USA on two occasions.

Students were instructed to "simulate" a "free Angela Davis" rally, referring to her brief stint in prison after guns linked to her were used in Marin County Civic Center attacks, in which four people were killed. She was ultimately acquitted of the charges against her, which included conspiracy to murder.

During the mock rally, students held signs which included slogans such as "Black Power" and "Jail Trump," although she went to jail more than 40 years prior to Trump's presidency.

The school itself has a history of promoting radicalism, and it is home to murals celebrating communist and Black Panther figures such as Davis and Huey P. Newton.

Meanwhile, as students at the William D. Kelley School participate in such activities, the school remains one of the lowest-performing educational institutes in all of Pennsylvania. Only three percent of sixth grade students at the school are proficient in math, while nine percent are proficient in reading.
