ECP staff, students, and community honored our Black/African American Community during Black History Month in a variety of ways.
We kicked the month off by celebrating Black/African American Literature, we taught all of our students the impact that Black/African American Literature has had on our society by having our Black/African American staff members sharing different authors books and poems via video. We involved our students by teaching them impactful moments in history and having them put on a dynamic student led production. We closed out the month on 2.28.15 by engaging families in an event that was designed to celebrrate life. We called the event, Day of Love, and honored the Black/African American young lives that have been taken. Our students shared a praise dance, video that they produced and we honored those lives through libations. Food was provided, music was danced to and families were able to embrace one another in a loving and powerful way. The staff at ECP enjoys celebrating different cultures and we look forward to celebrating many more throughout the year.
