EHS will host an African American History performance on February 15th in the high school auditorium for students. Center stage will be a moving dramaturgy performance by The Enchanted Circle Theater of Holyoke highlighting the work and life of Ida B. Wells who was a tireless activist for Black suffrage.
Adding to the discussion will be Dr. Battle-Baptiste, from UMass-Amherst, who will speak on the social layering and implications of exclusion and how to build upon community assets.
The ideal and principles of activism, empathy, compassion, inclusion and working for a cause will be discussed in classroom advisory periods before and after the program.
