Black Migrations

African-American History (Theme: Black Migrations)

Black Migrations emphasizes the movement of people of African descent to new destinations and subsequently to new social realities. While inclusive of earlier centuries, this theme focuses especially on the twentieth century through today. Such migrations resulted in a more diverse America.  The impact was experienced with the emergence of black entrepeneurs; new music forms like ragtime, blues and jazz; the blossoming of visual and literay arts; civil rights and protest activism; and the movement of African and Caribbean populations in the United States.

On Thursday, February 28th we will celebrate”Black Migrations” at the RBS.  Each class will select an element that can be shared with families and will sponsor a classroom “Soulful Brunch” to be enjoyed by the kids, families and staff. We are hosting the events inside of classrooms to create a more intimate environment for the families.
