GREENVILLE, S.C. (FOX Carolina) - A controversial book that sparked much-heated debate in the Pickens County School District has now been voted out by the board.

In a unanimous vote, the school board voted to remove “Stamped, Racism, Anti-Racism, and You”.

The book had been under review for almost a month after a parent from Daniel High School filed a complaint. You can read the full story here.
