Five Parker Junior High students will be dramatizing the story of the Black Panther Party when they represent Illinois in the junior high division at the National History Day competition June 10 at the University of Maryland.
 
A campaign is on now to help fund the students’ trip to the East Coast for the competition.

Editor,

I appreciate the articles written in the June 1 (H-F Chronicle) issue, “Family helps bring stories to life at national museum” by Jade Greear, and “Black man’s history being included in American story” by Paul Thornton.
 
The article written by Paul Thornton is one expressing the importance of black history and also to inform the public and those who are not familiar with the Emmett Till story.
