According to the emergency manager it was an accident but how do  you accidentally throw away books? The books are very historical.  You have things about Cab Calloway,  Duke Ellington, many of the black writers who are not published now that you  can't get these books."

Thousands of Black History books tossed in the garbage sparks a protest near the Detroit area.

The books were found in the trash outside a high school in Highland Park.

School officials claim workers mistakenly threw the books out but, protesters aren't buying that.

School officials say they were able to recover some of the materials.
One school board member has resigned over the book dumping.
