CHS presents annual Black History Program

On Feb. 21-22, 2019, CHS held its annual Black History Month program. This program was presented by the CHS S.A.G.E. club, as well as other high school students. The S.A.G.E. club puts this program together every year to celebrate history through the arts. We joined them as they celebrated Black History Month with song, dance, monologues, and the winners from the district-wide Black History speech competition.

Black History Month, also known as African-American History Month, is an annual observance. It began as a way for remembering important people and events in the history of the African diaspora.

This year's program was one to remember, from the different poems, speeches, dances, and songs, to guest speaker Mayor Booker Gainor. There were many teachers and staff who helped in the preparation of the program, including all the students that participated, practiced, and made the program a success. Thanks to our CHS S.A.G.E. Club, our Dance Team, and Chorus, the program came together perfectly!

We absolutely love seeing our CHS students participating in school events such as programs like these. It is important to have these programs that celebrate African American legends and remind us how far we have come in today's society, as well as how far we have left to go, because we are truly Black History. This program is proof that we all are looking forward to more in the future.
