From African dances to a "life-like" Martin Luther King speech, students and teachers were on their feet cheering at SAIL Friday afternoon. The school came together with a colorful variety of music, dancing, and singing from African American culture.
SAIL says this is its second annual black history celebration and it gets better every year. Teachers who helped put the event together say the best way to learn the rich history is to experience it.
Tiffany Thomas, the teacher who lead the event said, "It was very important for us to try and get a great mixture of black history from ancient times, old times, and still highlight students' talents today because they're a part of black history with their performances and their contributions to society."
Friday's performance was topped off with a realistic Dr. King speech from Minister Arthur Robertson.
