Loudoun Public Schools celebrate Black History Month

Like school systems throughout America, Loudoun County Public Schools is celebrating African-American History Month in February.

LCPS officials have released a list of different school activities throughout the month.

Students will take part in book reports, trivia projects, art and music lessons and performances all centered around the contributions of African-Americans to the country’s history.

Some students will be dissecting Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.’s “I Have a Dream” speech and writing what dream they envision for their life and community. Other black history titans such as Rosa Parks, George Washington Carver, Frederick Douglass and Langston Hughes are also among topics of study for the month.

Riverside High School is hosting a Black History Month School Discussion and Forum from 6 to 8 p.m. Feb. 26 in the auditorium and cafeteria. Loudoun County Board of Supervisors Chairwoman Phyllis Randall (D) and Lt. Easton McDonald of the Loudoun County Sheriff’s Office will be on a panel discussion moderated by students.

Black History Month has been celebrated in February since 1976.
