The Wardlaw+Hartridge School will recognize and celebrate Black History Month with events and activities in all three divisions throughout February.
In Lower School, literature will be the primary theme as the work of poets, playwrights, novelists and scholars of Black America will be shared. Several authors, including W+H parent April Terrell, mother of second-grader Addison ’31, will be featured during Zoom readings.
Middle School students will commemorate Black History through spoken word, moderated discussions and biography presentations. Works by Black writers will be shared through spoken word and Student Government and Publications will present posters of inspirational quotes. There will also be panel discussions on racial justice in America.
In Upper School, students will share presentations during weekly meetings and daily advisory activities will focus on specific themes, including literature, science and technology, civil rights and the arts. In addition, history classes will integrate material into the curriculum and the Symposium Committee will continue its preparation for the April event.
