Black History Month is an annual celebration of achievements by black Americans and a time for recognizing the central role of African Americans in U.S. history. 
 
Mrs. Allred’s eighth grade ELA students took advantage of an extra credit visual report for the month February by completing a visual report on a notable figure of African descent. Students had the choice of creating a slide show or designing a poster board. Janelle J. chose to focus her report on Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., while Brix C. chose Olympic medal winner Jesse Owens. Angela A. decided on Condoleezza Rice from our era.
