Was it this game

The complaint stems from a board game created as part of a research assignment by one student. The 7th grade boy decided to focus his project on the history of the infamous Ku Klux Klan. School administrators say the student designed the game to accompany his research paper, hoping it would help fellow classmates better understand the impact the white supremacy group had on civil rights.

That game was publicly displayed at last week’s open house.

“This is a matter of common sense,” says Wichita NAACP President Kevin Myles.

The concerned mother emailed Myles several photos of the board game. As players make their way around the edge, they follow instructions such as: “You forgot to wash your white robe and cannot go to the lynching. You are punished. Move back two spaces.”

Another square reads: “The rope you are hung with breaks. Move forward five spaces.”
