Learning from our History

Learning from our History Pic 1
The Burning Bush Family Foundation came to visit Brookhaven Elementary School for our first Annual Black History Month Program. Renee Joshua-Porter, the Executive Director and Producer of this Foundation, provided a wonderful assembly in recognition of Black History Month. The foundation provided a multicultural theatrical presentation entitled, "The Museum". This rich and interactive story followed a class on a field trip to a museum where 2 historical figures of African American descent came to life through song, dance, rap and prose. Throughout this journey, a teacher takes a group of disinterested students to a multimedia wax museum where the historical characters come to life to retell their stories. Performing Artists, Jamel Hudson (Sammy Davis Jr.) and Regine Williams (Eartha Kitt) displayed and portrayed these historic African Americans through a live dance and song performance.

Special thanks to Mrs. Nolde, second grade teacher, for assisting in providing our students with the opportunity to learn and enjoy the talents of American Africans who have contributed to our history!
