Students at Alamo City School (ACS) have been studying influential African Americans and the Civil Rights Movement over the past two months.

In celebration of Black History Month, ACS presented a program themed “Lift Every Voice” on Wednesday, February 26.

Students researched and presented influential figures such as former President Barack Obama, U.S. Secretary of Housing and Urban Development Dr. Ben Carson, Ida B. Wells, Martin Luther King, Jr., Rosa Parks, Jackie Robinson, Michelle Obama, Claude Calvin, Mohammed Ali, Beyonce, Whitney Houston and Kobe Bryant.

The celebration began with the singing of the National Anthem by Sheila Simmons and God Bless America, lead by the ACS Chorus.

The Crockett County High School choir sang spirituals such as “Swing Low”; “The Storm is Passing Over”, “Ride on King Jesus” and “Til We Meet Again”.

“This event was a great way for our students to learn about historical figures in American History. We are blessed to have dedicated staff that are willing to go above and beyond to educate our students in all aspect of American Culture,” said Principal Kelsie D. Henning.
