February 1, 2022

Black History month has begun, and the multicultural club has teamed up with counselor Matthew Shervington-Jackson to find a way to focus on lesser known Black figures each day of the month.

Multicultural club president Amanda Diggs hopes to expose the student body to accomplished Black individuals.

¨These videos will help the student body develop an understanding and appreciation for African Americans that worked hard to bring about change dring the civil rights [period],” Diggs said. ¨These videos should shed light on these individuals´ accomplishments and importance in history.¨

Short video profiles will air each day in February either before or after the AP NewsMinute on the Courier´s Daily Newscast.

The content comes from four different resources: Sports Illustrated, The City of Long Beach TV, The Atlanta Journal-Constitution and The View.
