We are celebrating Black History Month by hosting North Highland Elementary’s Black History Program! Come support the amazing students and build relationships with our neighbors as we cheer them on. If you would like to serve at the event, contact Kelley Rehrig.
MORE ABOUT THE PROGRAM:
"The Harlem Renaissance was the development of the Harlem neighborhood in New York City as a black cultural mecca in the early 20th Century and the subsequent social and artistic explosion that resulted. Lasting roughly from the 1910s through the mid-1930s, the period is considered a golden age in African American culture, manifesting in literature, music, stage performance and art.
As a result of the Harlem Renaissance many African Americans have continued this effort and helped shaped American culture in the arts, music, literature, and entertainment. Their contributions are vast, creative and life-enhancing."
The students and teachers (along with Langston University) have been hard at work to put on a program that will include dance, music, poetry, oratory, inventions, drill, stepping, and singing. Please come and encourage the students as they bring the many great achievements of Black Americans to the forefront of our minds.
