Montpelier High School in Vermont began flying a Black Lives Matter flag Thursday in what officials said was a commitment to make the mostly white institution more inclusive.

The student-led flag raising is part of a series of Black History Month events at the Montpelier High School, where 18 of the 350 students are black.

Some of those students took turns raising the flag Thursday morning in a ceremony attended by hundreds of students, staff and community members. The flag will be raised everyday during the month of February.

This is a powerful move in the right direction, hopefully others will follow suit.
