Dutch Broadway Holds Virtual Black History Month Assembly
Dutch Broadway School held a virtual assembly to recognize Black History Month on Feb. 26. The presentation featured students in grades K-6 and the various topics they learned about throughout the month, including slavery, the civil rights movement, the Harlem Renaissance, and Black innovators and inventers.
Videos were shared of students speaking about figures like Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., George Washington Carver and Lonnie Johnson. Informational slides with text and photos of other famous Black individuals, including Diana Ross and Ray Charles, were also featured in the presentation. Additionally, Langston Hughes’ poem, “Dreams,” was recited, as well as a class singing “Freedom, Freedom Let it Ring.”
Principal Cynthia Qasim closed the assembly by saying, “I have no doubt that I am looking at our future leaders and innovators. Black history continues to be made each and every day. I know that we will be highlighting some of you in the future.”
