Members of Black Star Project are calling for the resignation of Chicago Public Schools CEO Jean-Claude Brizard.

Black Star Project held a rally Wednesday night at the group's headquarters on the South Side.

Members want Mayor Rahm Emanuel to fire Brizard over what they call Brizard's poor record for educating young African Americans in Rochester, New York before coming to Chicago.
