The Catholic East Black History Month Celebration will be in two parts: the first will be our Black History Gallery where each classroom will have a representation of Black History they have been discussing and learning; the second will be our community Open Mic night. This year, we have chosen to focus on a variety of influential African Americans. Some amazing accomplishments were made Post-Civil Rights. We won't give away too much, but we are coming together to learn about the time periods that followed the struggle of so many Americans for the existence of equality.
All of our scholars will be invited to attend an Open Mic event where they will be sharing memoirs, poetry, songs, dances, uplifting messages, and community members will be sharing their knowledge. Light refreshments and snacks will be available for those in attendance.
