Black History Month Poetry

Black History Month just recently came to an end. To showcase pride during all three lunches on February 23rd, students openly expressed themselves through poetry regarding their heritage, winning the crowd over as they applauded for each poetry piece. The original pieces captured the attention of the other students. Many of the poetry topics, such as “kinky hair” were subjects that made the students feel as if they were understood and not alone. As everyone gathered around to see the performances they were influenced to attend the Black History Month Memorial after school.
