SAN FRANCISCO — The Alumni Group has sued to appeal the decision of the San Francisco School Board to cover a controversial mural in a public high school that some have described as racist
In August, the San Francisco Unified School District Education Board voted 4-3 to set up committees on the "Life of Washington" mural.
The film was produced in 1936 and portrays the life of George Washington. This depicts slaves working in Washington's property and settlers standing over the dead body of the Native Americans. Activists said the George Washington High mural was racist in its depiction of Native Americans and African Americans.
School Alumni Association filed a lawsuit Friday asking the Board to revoke its vote to remove the mural from public view and to conduct an environmental review. The Board did not respond to the filing immediately.

Is that a train, or is it a trolley? The latest SF Muni fleet could go off-wire
Regular Muni trolley bus lines are starting to notice the improvements. Low floors Navy blue seats instead of brown Motors that grow as smooth as a dishwasher on a light rinse cycle.
The esthetic changes are subtle but the new fleet has certain, more important benefits that can not be seen by commuters
Muni's 185 new 40-foot electric trolleys are operating all over the city. We move along the 1-California road, from the Financial District to Russian Hill and Richmond. These were visible on roads such as the 22-Fillmore, the 24-Divisadero, and the 31-Balboa. We sound like Fisher-Price toys: black with thick red lines and trolley poles dangling from the ground.
"They're better busses for me," said Kam Wong, who was waiting for the 1-California in the streets of Sacramento and Montgomery on Friday, holding a small Chihuahua on a leash.
Made by New Flyer, the new busses have powerful batteries that enable them to detach overhead wires for several miles at a time. It helps the San Francisco Metropolitan Transit Authority provide on-going service when a fire flares up, forcing the bus to detour. It also ensures that busses continue to run if work crews have to shut wires for construction projects — a frequent occurrence, with SFMTA's new "quick-build" policy to rebuild roads across the city
The new buses are more efficient, said Transit Manager Julie Kirschbaum. While having stronger batteries and being more impervious to disruption they probably won't break down as often as their counterparts. Older trolleys, manufactured by long-distance Electric Transit Inc., accounted for only 20 percent of Muni's bus fleet, but for 40 percent of its breakdowns.
"This is the last piece of a fully comprehensive plan to upgrade our vehicle fleet," said Kirschbaum. It has taken a methodical approach to the issues that have been persecuting San Francisco's rail system for years, from technical failures and driver shortages to bottlenecks at certain intersections.
