School leaders apologize for KKK attire in play


SIOUX FALLS (AP) – The Sioux Falls School District is apologizing for allowing a high school play performance that included student actors dressed in Ku Klux Klan clothing.

District administrators say the production of “The Foreigner” at Roosevelt High School last weekend was not properly vetted. A local social advocacy group Establishing Sustainable Connections raised concerns about the racist attire.

In a Facebook post, the organization said in today’s political climate, the imagery of KKK robes and hoods furthers the racial tension in the community.
