Focusing on African American Accomplishments at Frost

Focusing on African American Accomplishments at Frost thumbnail164729

For Black History Month, Robert Frost focused this year on the many contributions made by African Americans throughout the country’s history, including inventions, scientific innovations, entertainment, literature, politics and sports.

Continuing an annual tradition, teacher Lynne Connors and a committee of volunteer students created an informative display case in the main lobby that depicts a history rich in struggle and achievement.

During each day’s morning announcements, volunteer students are reading a list of “Do You Know?" facts to raise awareness of the accomplishments made by African Americans and the obstacles involved with achieving those accomplishments. Music that connects with the morning readings is played during afternoon announcements.
