Students in our Advanced Placement United States History classes are celebrating African-American greatness with their National History Day Projects. Among the projects there are stories of the heroics of African-Americans, such as, but not limited to, Mary Ellen Pleasant, Jesse Owens, Malcolm X, Rosa Parks, Dr. Thomas Brewer, Horace King, Muhammed Ali, and the list goes on and on. The projects are being featured in our National History Day competition on Friday February 24th at Shaw High School. Advanced Placement students will also analyze two important primary sources from the Civil Rights Era, Letter from the Birmingham Jail and I Have a Dream speech by Dr. Martin Luther King.
Students in all United States History classes are working on our Civil Rights Unit where they gain knowledge of the struggle and some of the most influential people in that struggle, including Martin Luther King, Jr., Jackie Robinson, and others. Organizations, such as CORE (Congress on Racial Equality), SNCC (Student Non-Violent Coordination Committee), and SCLC (Southern Christian Leadership Conference) are also included in the course of study. We celebrate the successes gained through these individuals and these groups.
Eyes on the Prize will also be shown in United States History classes and issues will be discussed in great detail.
Our display case in the Shaw Media Center boast many artifacts dealing with Black History. All students are encouraged to examine these fascinating items.
We proudly celebrate Black History Month at Shaw High School!
