Celebrating Black History Month at Churchill School

Students at District 153’s Churchill School presented a “Museum Night” on Thursday, Feb. 22, giving parents, siblings and community members the chance to look at a host of exhibits and participate in activities.
There was lots of music happening when students and their families got to beat West African-designed drums. Guests got special entertainment from fifth graders who took over the gym to create their own Cotton Club, the famous Harlem nightclub.
Guests stopped to read biographies and reports on important African-Americans. Displays included clay sculptures inspired by the work of Augusta Savage, a sculptor who gained renown during the Harlem Renaissance of the 1920s and early 1930s. The period gave prominence to African-Americans in the arts.
