Every February across the country, we celebrate Black History Month. This year, Robbinsdale Area Schools is bringing to our community a series of videos showcasing students performing in culturally relevant ways.
In the first, FAIR School Crystal’s acclaimed middle school choir performs two songs: Lift Every Voice, which is often referred to as "The Black National Anthem,” and a Ghanaian folk song called the Tuwe Tuwe Children’s Song. View the video here.
In the second video, students from Plymouth Middle School and Armstrong and Cooper high schools deliver a number of spoken word performances. Spoken word is important to Black History Month because performances often have a social advocacy focus and are a form of self expression found in the Black culture. View the video here.
