The top stories this afternoon from KERA News: About 60 black high school students from Dallas say they were taunted with racial slurs during a visit to Texas A&M University this week. The kids from Uplift Hampton Preparatory were touring the College Station campus on Tuesday.

The Frisco school district made headlines this week when it approved an apparel contract with Nike worth $1.74 million. Nike will be the sole supplier of uniforms and equipment for middle and high school sports in Frisco.
