Beryl Henry Elementary School students and faculty presented a program of music and poetry to celebrate Black History Month. ESL Paraprofessional Karen Flenory sang a stirring rendition of Rise Up, while student Alana Flenory recited the poem “Harriet Tubman Didn’t Take No Stuff,” and the BHE Choir, under the direction of Sandra Jones, sang in honor of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Franchesca Hill gave a reading of “Did You Know?”, while Gigi Knight sang “Lift Every Voice.” Ms. Shelda Garland recited “Are You Humanity?”, and Migrant Paraprofessional Inell Thorton played and sang “Worth.” A surprise vocal performance by Tiangelia Harris of the old spiritual “Troubles of this World” ended the evening.
