JFK Kicks Off Black History Month with Cultural Assembly

Black History Month came to JFK with an array of educational activities designed to spark awareness. The school kicked off the monthlong celebration with an interactive music and dance assembly from the multicultural Phyllis Rose Dance Company, exploring the roots of African and African-American culture.

“JFK is doing some great things to celebrate Black History Month,” said Associate Principal Kelly Benson. “Our students are learning about different African Americans who have impacted our history, and we are spreading Dr. Martin Luther King’s message by spreading kindness around the building, with students are being recognized for small acts of kindness that they do throughout the day.”
