NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — Students at the Ethical Culture Fieldston School in Riverdale made headlines earlier this week after they staged a “lock-in” to protest the school’s handling of a blackface incident involving two students at the school.
On Thursday, the students in charge of the demonstration held a press conference at the school to address their demands and potential changes to the school’s policy. It was a victory parade for the students after their demands for action against bias, bigotry and racism at their school were answered by administrators.
