Vermont HS becomes first in nation to raise "Black Lives Matter" flag


A high school in Vermont's capital marked the beginning of Black History Month by raising a Black Lives Matter flag.

On top of that, school officials say Montpelier High School is the first high school in the country to do so.

The student group Racial Justice Alliance initially began the effort, and the school board unanimously voted in favor of it.

Raising the flag has sparked some backlash, but Principal Mike McRaith said they've received overwhelming support from the community.

Do you see other schools around the country following in the footsteps of Montpelier High School this month?
