Last week’s School Meeting served as a showcase for Lawrenceville’s current and upcoming Black History Month activities.
Kylan Tatum ’21 began with an address to students, explaining, “Black History Month is not only a time of outward education, but also a chance for self-reflection and discovery. It is a time to celebrate Black culture but also a reminder that we have a long way until equality, but it is an issue that we will continue to tackle, one step, one fight, one month at a time.”
Attendees were treated to a musical performance of "Lift Every Voice and Sing" by cellist Tasan Smith-Gandy '20 and pianist was Jordan Jones '20, plus a dance performance by FroBeats. Other upcoming events announced at the meeting include Black Music Fridays, taking place at 6:00 p.m. in the Bunn Library through the end of the month, and a screening of the Emmy-winning documentary “Ethnic Notions” (also in the Bunn Library) on February 28 at 6:45 p.m.
