Join us in paying tribute to the generations of African Americans who struggled with adversity to achieve full citizenship in American society.

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.
