Meeting To Focus On Racial Incident


June 12, 2017

The local NAACP chapter is hosting a meeting tonight in response to an alleged incident on May 19 at Brevard High School.

A 16-year-old Brevard High student faces three separate misdemeanor charges of simple assault, communicating threats and ethnic intimidation against a fellow 17-year-old student.

According to reports, the white suspect allegedly threatened to hang the black 17-year-old with a noose and used racial slurs.

Tonight’s meeting will be held at 6:15 p.m. at Bethel “A” Baptist Church on Oakdale Street in Brevard.
