Another activity referencing slavery has been reported at a Gwinnett County public school.
Some students at Camp Creek Elementary at Lilburn have told WSB-TV on video that they played a game that involved "slaves and slave catchers" with their teacher.
A Gwinnett schools spokesperson told the station that the activity was student-initiated and that allegations of teacher involvement were unfounded.
"It is demeaning, dehumanizing and hurtful," parent Charvia Rivers said.
This incident comes not long after a teacher at Beaver Ridge Elementary in Norcross resigned in the wake of a controversy involving test questions that included references to slavery.
The GCPS statement to WSB said, "The school district looked into concerns regarding four students who participated in a playground activity. The district determined that the activity was student initiated and that allegations regarding the teacher's involvement were unfounded."
One of the parents has met with a Camp Creek official about the incident, and diversity training reportedly is being planned, though it is not clear if that is for Camp Creek or the system as a whole.
One third-grader said in the video, "She (teacher) would sit on the bench, and the slave catchers would come up to the door and ask, 'Did she have any slaves?' "
Another student said the teacher described the activity "as a game where slave catchers catch slaves."
