Guests help with PirateTV announcements

Hello and welcome to the PirateTV announcements. I am Aryanna and I am Carlos.

In February, we celebrate Black history month… also known as African-American History Month in America. It began as a way yo remembet important people and events in the history of the African community. Black History Month is a month set aside to learn, honor, and celebrate the achievements of black men and women throughout history. Since its inception, it has always been celebrated in February. The origins of Black History Month can be traced back to a man named Carter G. Woodson who lived fromn 1875-1950.

Woodson was the son of former slaves, was an amazing man in his own right. Since his family was too poor to send him to school as a child, he taught himself the basics of a school education. At age 20, Woodson was finally able to attend high school, which he completed in just two years.

We asked students about the culture here at Englewod.
