Florida school named for Ku Klux Klan leader to be renamed

SEGAZINE

A Florida high school that for 54 years has borne the name of a leader of the Ku Klux Klan is to be renamed, officials said.

The Nathan Bedford Forrest High School in Jacksonville, Fla., where more than half the students are black, will change its name from that of the man who allegedly was the Ku Klux Klan’s first grand wizard.

A new name will be proposed in January.
