LCISD should never have chosen a former plantation as our prom location.

The majority of LCISD is comprised of minority students—around 60% to be clear. With this in mind, you can understand the disbelief from students, us Black students in particular, when it was revealed our prom would be held at George Ranch Historical Park, a former plantation. 

2020 was meant to be a year of enlightenment, change, and understanding. So much effort was put in, specifically with the Black Lives Matter Movement, to educate people on the complexities of the way Black people must view society because our experience is much different than say, a white person.

Now here we are in 2021, and Black people are being asked to dance on their ancestors graves.

We are aware it may be too late to get LCISD to change our prom location. The goal of this petition is to allow us to show the Board of Trustees just how unacceptable this decision was, with hopes that such an atrocity will never occur again.

If you stand with us, if you understand how this is wrong on so many levels, please sign our petition in support of the minority students, and particularly Black students, in LCISD.

Update: We have begun putting together our own prom, and created a gofundme to help with costs. Any money you planned on giving here to help with promotion, we’d appreciate if you took it there instead!
