A Virgin Mary statue was set ablaze outside a Boston church Saturday night, said police who are investigating the arson incident. Officers at 10 p.m. responded to a call for a fire in the area of 284 Bowdoin St. in Dorchester. On arrival at Saint Peter’s Parish, officers saw that a statue of the Blessed Virgin Mary had been set on fire. A suspect had lit plastic flowers on fire, which were in the hands of the Virgin Mary statue, according to members of the Boston Fire Department Fire Investigation Unit. That caused the statue’s face and upper body to get burned, according to officials.

Under sunny skies, hundreds of teachers and supporters of city school students started marching this morning at 11 a.m. to insist that the Philadelphia School District make racial justice changes they believe are long overdue for the district’s 125,000 students. The group, some holding signs supporting Black Lives Matter and better funding for city schools, started their march at City Hall, proceeding north toward the district’s Broad Street headquarters. Organizers came well prepared with water, sunscreen, and snacks. They also encouraged people to get tested for COVID-19. Most in the crowd, including students, were donning masks.

Virginia high schools to offer African
American history courses in fall

When Virginia high school students return to class this fall, they’ll have the option of taking an African American history course—a new offering in the commonwealth this year. The state’s Commission on African American History Education—which has been tasked with making sure African American history is properly represented in the state’s schools—would like the course to be made mandatory for seniors to qualify to graduate. But Virginia Education Secretary Atif Qarni said the state is not ready for that yet. “We just don’t have enough licensed teachers to teach the course,” said Qarni. “So we have to build capacity.”
