A San Francisco elementary school recently shed its old name as stand against racism. Formerly named Peter Burnett elementary after the state’s first civilian elected governor and a known racist, school officials were prompted to remove Burnett’s name from the building.

Urged by San Francisco NAACP chapter President Rev. Amos Brown, the present-day elementary school bearing the name Peter Burnett Elementary changed its name to the Leola M. Havard Early Education School one week ago today.

The school is now called  Early Education School in tribute to San Francisco’s first African-American principal. Havard, who first started in 1949 served the district for 30 years.
