Black History Month Celebration


On February 24, 2012, one of the most historic events of all times took place at Friendship Collegiate Academy. On this day we welcomed talented student performers from Friendship Blow Pierce Junior Academy, Friendship Chamberlain Elementary, Friendship Southeast Elementary Academy, Woodridge and Collegiate. They were the perfect cast for an outstanding display of past events of black history. The FPCS plays took us back to the Motherland, Africa. The Blow Pierce students put on an outstanding African dance performance. Chamberlain really showed us what enslavement must have been like, and Collegiate made us really feel apart of the Harlem Renaissance. However, there was no doubt that the civil rights portion presented by Woodridge was the most moving part of the plays. A student recited Martin Luther King's, "I Have a Dream " with great charisma.

To conclude, these presentations were brilliant and everyone did an amazing job.
