A letter that lists a "white graduates only" party as one of the activities planned for a class reunion has sparked outrage after it was leaked online.
For nearly 40 years, graduates from the St. Martinville, La., Senior High School Class of 1973 have been holding racially segregated class reunions.
But this year, a local news affiliate reports that the graduates decided to change that tradition, making the reunion a non-segregated affair. However, a letter announcing the change included an after party for "white graduates only."
Michael Kreamer, who is the principal of the Louisiana school, said he found the letter distressing.
"I'm just a little disappointed that something like this comes up," he told KATC. "I don't think that it looks good for the school, but again as I said it has nothing to do with St. Martinville Senior High. So I hope people don't take that the wrong way."
