Black History Month Celebrated

Members of the Multicultural Club and the Students for Social Justice wrote and performed the assembly with direction from their moderators, Mr. Joseph Udiel, Mr. Scott O'Donnell '06, Ms. Allyce Hanley '15 and Mr. David Feng. 
The journey through the decades began with a look at the role that music played in the lives of those who were enslaved and included an excerpt from American abolitionist and women's rights activist Sojourner Truth's "Aint I a Woman?". Other acts focused on the work of American Jazz and swing singer Billie Holiday and the contributions of Black artists to Rock and Roll, R&B, Hip-Hop, and Soca and Dancehall. The assembly ended with a choreographed dance Soca dance number by the entire ensemble.
Special thank you to the SEP Drum Line and the Stem Team who kicked off the assembly with performances.
