Chick-fil-A to host mother-son 'Date Knight'

Chick-fil-A to host mother-son 'Date Knight'

ATLANTA -- All of the Chick-fil-A restaurants in metro Atlanta will host a special mother-son Date Knight on Saturday, Apr. 28.

The Date Knight format will be similar to that of the franchise's massively popular Daddy-Daughter Date Nights. It will give mothers and sons a special chance to enjoy some quality time together.

The event will have a medieval theme, hence the "Knight" part of its title.

"One of Chick-fil-A's goals is to promote community connections and enrich the lives of everyone we come in contact with," Robin Lomax, Chick-fil-A area marketing director, said in a statement. "We understand the importance of mother-son relationships and want to encourage local moms to come to Chick-fil-A, enjoy their sons' company over a meal and have fun."

Parents work to prevent racism in schools

Parents work to prevent racism in schools

NORCROSS, Ga. -- Several Gwinnett County parents are banding together to make sure that controversial homework assignments become a thing of the past.

Monday night, the NAACP held a town hall meeting in Gwinnett County.

The meeting was hosted in the wake of a scandal at Beaver Ridge Elementary School in Norcross, where third grade teachers handed out a math assignment with questions about beatings and slavery.

The assignment sparked a firestorm of controversy. The teacher who wrote it has since resigned.

NAACP members say they plan to host more meetings in the future to ensure that racism stays out of Gwinnett County schools.
