Enhancement teachers, fourth and fifth grade teachers, and the graphic design teacher, have put together a comprehensive program depicting students' heritage. The “Black National Anthem” will be sung and students will dance the “Lindy Hop.” Students will perform tableaux of events such as the “Greensboro Four” and “Harriet Tubman”, with students dressed as historical and modern figures reciting monologues to tell of the contributions of those individuals to modern culture.
