While school officials admit that students did play a slavery-based game at recess, they deny that a teacher organized the activity.
The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports:
Ericka Lasley told Channel 2 that her 8-year-old daughter said she was a slave and other students were slave catchers during a game similar to tag. The third-grade student said the teacher proposed the game based on what the class is learning.
“She would sit on the bench and the slave catchers would come up to the door and ask did she have any slaves,” the girl said.
