Student Voices: Black History Month

Last month, our students were privileged to view the fruit of almost two months of research and preparation by the dedicated members of our Middle School Black Student Union, guided by faculty advisor, Ms. Donna Hicks. On February 27, these students (in grades 6 through 8) took the stage to present an assembly in honor of Black History Month.

Over the course of their presentation, students considered the contributions of African Americans to politics, science, engineering, athletics, and the arts, reflecting as well on current events and culture, and acknowledging the work that is still to be done in promoting a more diverse and equitable society.

We are so proud of your work and creativity, and we thank you for your leadership in engaging our community in reflection on the contributions of African Americans, past and present, to our culture and community!
