Black History Fair- “At the Crossroads of Freedom and Equality: Emancipation Proclamation to the March on Washington”
This year’s theme for DC Bilingual Public Charter School's Black History Fair was “At the Crossroads of Freedom and Equality: Emancipation Proclamation to the March on Washington”. The year 2013 marks two important anniversaries in the history of African Americans and the United States. We celebrated the sesquicentennial of the Emancipation Proclamation and the 50th anniversary of the March on Washington. Each grade level team selected abolitionists, writers, and political figures of the era to display during the fair.
Other events include:
Urban Artistry graced us with their new MLK tribute performance at Irving St. La Plaza on Friday, February 8th for our 3rd, 4th, and 5th grade classes!
Smithsonian National Museum of African American History and Culture will have 2 museum teachers come and share “Mission Preservation” on Friday, February 15th, in our 4th and 5th grade classrooms to learn about the importance of preserving information.
