Mercy celebrates Black History Month!
Black History Month presents an important opportunity to continue to celebrate African Americans and recognize their central role in U.S. history. Mercy’s Mosaic Club will be highlighting many notable, historic African American individuals during the morning announcements. Mercy’s Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion student subcommittee will launch ‘The Silhouette Project’ featuring posters highlighting the accomplishments of Black women which are often ‘hidden in the shadows behind the work of others.’ The Cheryl Speranza Leadership Institute at Mercy created a video that explores the importance of Black History Month. In addition, homerooms will decorate their doors reflecting a Black woman who has influenced history; videos and songs featuring Black history will be played in homeroom; and students will play a Black history trivia game! While various aspects of Black history are infused into Mercy’s daily curriculum, Mercy welcomes Black History Month as a time to learn, grow, and reflect.
