Black History Month

The theme for this year's Black History Month is: BLACK JOY! For our students, “Black Joy means focusing on the successes and accomplishments of Black people of all backgrounds. Despite the hardships we’ve faced and still are facing, we continue to rise. We are leaders, scientists, doctors, innovators, entertainers, and so much more. Black Joy is capturing the triumphs of our people and celebrating them despite us living in a world that was built on the oppression of our skin."
