Hank Aaron To Replace Confederate General’s Name On Atlanta SchooBy Adam Roberts – 4/15/2021
Former Milwaukee/Atlanta Brave and Milwaukee Brewer Hank Aaron’s name will replace a confederate general’s name at an Atlanta high school. The city’s school board voted unanimously to name the school after the baseball great over Nathan Bedford Forrest, who was also a leader of the Ku Klux Klan. The Forest Hill Academy will be renamed the Hank Aaron New Beginnings Academy.
Four other schools that honored historic figures who held racist views have been renamed in Atlanta in the last few months.
Aaron passed away from natural causes back in January.
