Local Schools Celebrate Black History Month

Tufts University Choir came down from Connecticut to perfom at Bildersdee celebration. The spirit of Black History Month was alive and well in local schools last week, as two of them - Isaac Bildersee I.S. 68 and Curtis Estabrook Public School 272 - marked the event with evenings of entertainment for family, friends and staff of the respective schools.

P.S. 272 featured a rousing production of "It Takes A Village To Raise A Child," produced and directed by second grade teacher Shaunda Hester, who second graders performed like pros.

I.S. 68 students were treated to a special performance by the Tuft University Third Day Gospel Choir. Students from the three academies at the junior high school then read poetry and recited monologues.
