Lynchburg school officials send letter to Dunbar families over disrupted Black History Month observance

LynchburgCitySchoolsLynchburg School Superintendent Scott Braband has sent a letter home to all Dunbar Middle School families in response to community concerns over last Friday’s Black History Month observance.
