Black History Month

Habari! (Greetings) 

Another magnificent year has gone by. We are returning to the season of a celebration of the African-American culture. During the months leading up to February, the AJK Fine Arts Department, staff advisors, and students focused on academics as they pertained to African-American history, culture, and traditions – specifically as the studies pertained to music, visual art, dance, and spoken word. This year our annual presentation, Rise! - A Celebration of African- American History returned to a live performance. Two months of planning and preparation and one month of specific lessons brought it all down to one day of celebration with acknowledgment that Black history is American history, every day, 365.
