Four young Black women who created a racial justice podcast and pushed Denver Public Schools to diversify its curriculum sued the district Monday. They allege Denver Public Schools unlawfully tried to trademark and steal the name of their podcast — Know Justice, Know Peace — “knowing full well the brand name was created by the students.”
“Shame on DPS,” the lawsuit says.
The lawsuit was filed in U.S. District Court on behalf of two graduates of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Early College high school, Alana Mitchell and Jenelle Nangah, and two current students who are only identified by their initials because they are minors.
