Today I will be talking about the black history program. On Feb. 22 we had a black history program. We need to remember more than just famous African Americans like Rosa Parks and Martin Luther King Jr. There are lots of African Americans who are not famous but did something to help this country. African Americans thank Rosa Parks for refusing to move for a white person. They also thank Martin Luther King Jr. for his famous " I Have a Dream" speech.Our black history program had singing, skits and dancing. Our chorus sang three songs, "Hush," "Keep Your Eye on the Prize," and "Front of the Bus." Six of our 5th-grade students put on a skit. Black history is important to the U.S. and to Mossy Creek Elementary.
