HIGHLAND PARK (WKZO) -- Protesters stopped traffic in Highland Park Tuesday in response to the discovery of hundreds of black history books, tapes, films and other materials in a dumpster.

The group gathered at Renaissance Academy to demand the resignation of the district's Emergency Manager Donald Weatherspoon.  He earlier acknowledged the materials were thrown into a dumpster, but said workers had mistakenly cleaned out the historical items.

Vice President of the Highland Park Renaissance Academy System's board, Andre Davis, resigned today over the matter.
