Black History Month Celebration and Presentations
Students in African American Literature classes helped to celebrate Black History month by teaching their peers about events in American History that significantly impacted civil rights and race relations in America. Covering topics from the 1950s to today, students created slideshows to share and reflect upon events that stood out to them in American History. We learned about the fight to desegregate schools in the 1950s, Bloody Sunday, the L.A. Riots of the 1990s, and the 2020 killing of Ahmaud Arbery, just to name a few. Students did an excellent job of researching, analyzing, and presenting information about these events that impacted our country.
