MNHS Ends Month Long Black History Celebration with African American Heritage Program
The Manalapan High School recently celebrated Black History Month with a sensational African American heritage musical program presented by the Dimensions Band.
“The heritage program took our students on a journey through music and time showing the birth, struggle, and triumph of African American music. The excursion through music and spoken word included Martin Luther King, Jr., Harriet Tubman, Billy Holiday, Dianna Ross, and Michael Jackson,” shared Assistant Principal, Lavetta Ross. “The attire and music from various eras truly made the performance authentic,” she added. The program was hosted by students of the Manalapan High School United Cultural Awareness Club (UCAC) under the leadership of Family & Consumer Science Teacher, Sharolyn Franklin. “The UCAC is committed to providing diverse and enriching opportunities for students that helps them discover and embrace the dynamics of other cultures while expressing their own,” shared Ms. Franklin. “As students of the UCAC, we are always looking for ways to create more opportunity to promote diversity within our school,” shared UCAC Student President, Courtney McPherson.
