An annual tradition at West Hempstead High School for Black History Month continued this February, when students created a museum featuring several accomplishments of African-Americans in U.S. history.
Michael Paul and Stephanie Withopf’s social studies classes designed poster boards, diagrams, dioramas, tri-folds and books after researching historical figures, events and/or groups connected to black history. Projects spotlighted the Apollo, Little Rock High School, Muhammed Ali, Chuck Berry and hip-hop among many other topics.
Projects were assembled in Paul’s classroom on Feb. 14-15, when peers and staff members toured the museum while answering questions at each stop to become further educated on black history.
