The virtual event was attended by an array of people who make up the Capital City community – including staff, students, families, and educational stakeholders. Front Office Manager Brandon Honemond acted as emcee.
This year’s event focused on Black Health & Wellness, and featured art, narratives, and learning from students and staff across all three campuses. Athletic Director Adrian Degraffinreaidt made this video with his seventh-grade son Darian to talk about Black wellness during the pandemic and what they do as a family to stay physically, emotionally, and spiritually healthy.
All three campus principals — Lower School Principal Míchelle Johnson, Middle School Principal Laina Cox, and High School Principal Belicia Reaves — were in attendance at the event. As Black women, each principal took some time to speak a bit about what Black History Month means to them.
"What is Black History Month for me? It’s a chance to celebrate the contributions, achievements, and legacy of my ancestors," said Principal Cox. "It’s a reminder that Black history is all history."
