Dr. Cicely Cobb is an English teacher at Ahwatukeee’s Desert Vista High School in Arizona. Teaching there was Cobb’s dream job until her recent and unfortunate struggle with racial discrimination from her students, staff members and administrators. Cobb filed a lawsuit earlier this year and says the mistreatment has gotten worse since then.

On a daily basis, Dr. Cobb has had to endure negative social media taunts and crude behavior on school grounds. Watch the full interview on the next page.
