Pass Road Elementary Holds Black History Month program
The fifth graders at Pass Road Elementary in Gulfport let freedom ring during their Black History program.
Singing songs of freedom, positive change, and forward thinking, students learned about the struggle for Civil Rights and how they can make a positive impact in the world.
The program included speeches, sign language, and movement. Parents and family attended the assembly, cheering on the students as they performed. Pass Road Elementary Music Teacher Diane Rush said, “We have studied a little bit of the freedom songs and we studied a little bit of how Dr. King encouraged people to sing. It is peaceful, but powerful and I still believe that today. Our music has changed, our times have changed, but it still can happen.”
Hallways throughout the school are decorated, highlighting black activists, educators, musicians, and others who have incited positive, progressive change.
