Celebrating Black Art at Capital City

On Friday, February 23, the Capital City community came together to celebrate African Americans and the Arts at our annual Black History Month Celebration. Students and staff showcased a variety of talents highlighting and paying homage to Black art and artists. In addition to performances, the event included a community meal in the cafeteria served by student, staff, and parent volunteers.
