"Black History Month" activities at Kensington!
In honor of Black History Month, "A Sign of the Times" of the Carolinas came to perform for the Kensington students. During this performance, students heard different instruments (African percussion, electric bass, trombone) perform various styles of music, from spirituals to rap! Headed by Tyrone Jefferson, who performed with James Brown's band, this group provided an educational yet energetic concert which left our students asking for an encore!!!
In addition to this return performance by "Sign of the Times", Kensington Elementary celebrated Black History Month in the student reading! Mrs. Taylor, our media specialist, put up two special displays of texts relating to Black History and made these texts available for checkout. Our special areas team also integrated "Africa" throughout their lessons at all grade levels!
At Kensington, we celebrate our diverse culture, and we celebrate Black History Month!
