Black History month is an important time of reflection and connectivity. It is a time to honor the past as we recognize how previous struggles connect to the present day and pave the way for a brighter future. An important part of this includes ensuring that our youth are connected to leaders who look like them and are from their communities. Hearing about their life journeys, struggles, career aspirations, and successes shows them that they too can achieve what they set their minds to.
Throughout the month of February we are bringing in leaders, influencers, entrepreneurs, writers, educators, business people, artists, media personalities, chefs, sports personalities, and dreamers to talk to and inspire our scholars at PS7 and Sac High.
The Guild Theater is delighted to partner with Celebration Arts to host the play “Direct for Death Row: The Scottsboro Boys.” This moving play shares the African-American experience of overcoming discrimination. The play runs through March 5.
