EUREKA, Ca., (KIEM)- The month of February is Black History Month, and Eureka high school hosted its very first Black History celebration. This afternoon, students got to get out of class and learn more about what Black History Month is all about.
The program was put on by the high school’s Black Student Union. Ayana Watson and Dorshaela Wesson emceed the event.
It included a slide show presentation of students and teachers talking about what Black History means to them. Then a panel of four came to talk to students about their experience, and why bringing awareness of diversity to students is important.
The Black Student Union will have their final rally Thursday at lunch. And during the rally, students and staff will have the opportunity to vote for their favorite poster celebrating black culture. The winner will be announced on Friday.
