(Yahoo!News) A junior high field trip for learning about America’s past deteriorated into an over-the-top re-enactment of the Underground Railroad, complete with at least one participant shouting the n-word, parents of one of the students allege.

WFSB reports that a four-day trip from Magnet Trinity College Academy in Hartford, Conn., last year to Nature’s Classroom in nearby Charlton, Mass., included a day devoted to slavery re-enactment.

Sandra Baker, a mother of one of the students, told WFSB that she and her husband have filed a complaint against their daughter’s school board over what allegations their daughter made.
