Black Pride Poem Ignites Controversy in Westchester [US]:
With the ease and style of a seasoned reverend addressing her congregation, seven-year-old Autum Ashante addressed the crowd at City Hall on March 14. The little girl has become the center of controversy after she said her poem was not for White people.

White parents and children in the Peekskill school system in Westchester were offended when she prefaced a reading of a poem she had written for Black History and Women's History months with the an aside that the poem was written specifically for Black and Hispanic children—not Whites. Administrators made apologetic phone calls to upset parents and there is talk of banning Autum from ever again speaking publicly in the school system.
