(KVUE) — A northwest Austin mother wants answers after she said her 12-year-old daughter came home from Four Points Middle School with an assignment that instructed the young girl to draw a picture of herself as a slave.

“There’s nothing about slavery that I would want any child, regardless of color, to have to relive,” her mother Tonya Jennings said.

Jennings was shocked when the seventh-grader pulled the assignment out of her backpack and showed her what was on the last page.
