Celebrating Black History Month

This February, Bosque School acknowledged Black History Month with bulletin boards in the middle and upper schools created by members of the WOKE service learning group. Middle school students chose to frame the history of Black History Month by highlighting its beginnings in1926 by Dr. Carter G. Woodson, a noted African-American historian, scholar, and educator. For the upper school, students elected to highlight LGBTQ activist Marsha P. Johnson, alongside modern artists such as Jean-Michele Basquiat. Middle school students were an attentive audience for staffulty members who came together to honor the writings of African-American women; they shared their favorite works and spoke about the impact each of the authors had on their love of reading.
