In Mississippi, every single Black state senator stood up and walked out as the Republican-led Senate passed a bill which would ban the teaching of critical race theory in public schools. This is Senator Barbara Blackmon speaking ahead of the walkout.

Sen. Barbara Blackmon: “This bill is not morally right. I heard this gentleman say he talked to his African American friend, and I guess everybody has an African American friend. There are 14 Black senators in this chamber, and these 14 Black senators are telling you that this bill is morally wrong.”

The bill passed 32-2, with the two votes against the bill cast by white Democratic senators.
