Black History Wax Museum

On February 23rd the halls and cafeteria turned into a wax museum as 6th grade students dressed up as famous African-Americans, both living and dead. When you pressed the button, the historical figure would come to life and tell you about their accomplishments. This year we met Michelle Obama, Oprah Winfry, Coretta Scott King, Martin Luther King, Mae Jemison, George Washington Carver, Frederick Douglas, Martin Delany, Willie Mays, Jesse Owens, Marion Anderson, Ella Fitzgerald, Thurgood Mashall, Mansamusa, Zora Hurston, Misty Copeland, Lynette Woodard, Muhammad Ali, Tina Turner, Mary Ellen Pleasant, Ruby Dee, Lauryn Hill, Crispus Attucks, and more.
