We Are Who We Are Because They Were Who They Were - A Celebration of Black History Month At LVA
Lakeview Academy celebrated Black History Month with a culminating presentation highlighting the artistic, writing, dramatic, and performing talents of our students. The school foyer was decorated with created figures of historic African-Americans. Some figures included intricate details including facial features or clothing attire. Several hand-drawn posters that included biographical data lined the walls of the school gym.
The show was presented twice to allow the whole student body to participate. The show was emceed by fifth grader Zuri Grant. It included a group choral reading of a poem and a solo poem reading.
The audience enjoyed the performing talents of the LVA Step Team, the LVA Drill Team and the LVA Chorus.
The LVA Drama Club presented a staged interview of historic African-American figures. Nathan Tchamna also read his award-winning essay.
The show was one that was incredibly well-done and entertaining. Ms. Jamila Anderson, LVA fourth grade teacher, was the driving force behind the creation of the show.
