Black History Month Celebration

After months of intensive planning by a dynamic group of volunteers, the 17th annual Black History Month Celebration has arrived. This year’s theme is Brooklyn Activism.Talking about activism and what makes someone an activist helps children think about how changes happen in a community. Through a variety of workshops ranging from Food Justice, Animal Rights, Craft Activism, Homeless Advocacy and Artistic Activism, students will be inspired to make a statement, build a community, or save the world.

 

The celebration begins on Wednesday, Feb. 3 with a film screening and panel discussion on Chisholm 72: Unbought and Unbossed at 6:30 pm in the Pearl Street Meeting House. A reception precedes the screening at 6:00 p.m. in the cafeteria.  RSVP requested.

 

Events continue on Friday, Feb. 5 with workshops for students from 3:30pm – 5:30pm, a community dinner at 5:30 pm, a program featuring performances by BFS students at7pm, and a Dance Party at 8pm. All events take place at Pearl Street, and we expect a wonderful turnout.
