Ending Black History Month with a celebration of community
To mark the end of Black History Month, and to commit to honoring diversity year-round, we held a celebration at our main campus earlier this week.
The event, featuring food, music, art and a keynote address from Maple Heights mayor Annette Blackwell, focused on the theme, “Black history is everyone’s history.”
The Cleveland Heights High School a cappella choir started the day’s festivities with a performance. Then, spoken word artist Chris Webb shared a few poems that dared the audience to follow their dreams, no matter what.
Mayor Blackwell’s keynote address closed the program with an address about the connections we share, and she challenged the crowd to take the day’s theme to heart.
