LEWISTON — Lewiston’s school superintendent is allowing students to display a poster protesting grand jury decisions not to indict two police officers who killed unarmed black men.

Lewiston Superintendent Bill Webster said Thursday he’s allowing the display after reviewing the poster and meeting with students.

He said students were required to take it down Monday because he didn’t get an opportunity to review it. The poster included a Twitter hashtag #blacklivesmatter, which is dedicated to a discussion of race and racial injustice after the deaths of two unarmed men at the hands of police in Missouri and New York City.

A student said she was originally told to change the hashtag to #alllivesmatter. But Webster allowed the original. He said there’ll be a community forum on Jan. 15.
