Students Celebrate Black History Month with Video Presentations

Catch them each weekday morning in February by subscribing to The UltraViolet channel, or following updated links in this post.

This month, students taking the African American Literature elective are celebrating the rich heritage and plentiful contributions made to society by African Americans with a video series entitled "A Portrait of a People":

From Wheatley to Morrison, Angelou to Obama, and Evers to Hurston, we celebrate you with these portraits throughout the month of February, as we learn, digest, educate, but most importantly, celebrate the many contributions of members in the African American Community. 

Each student in class has created a short video highlighting the life of one influential African American. One presentation will air each weekday morning throughout February on The UltraViolet student newspaper YouTube channel.
