To kickoff Black History Month, the Black Student Union (BSU) is hosting a movie night playing Wakanda Forever and will have soul food catered. This takes place on Friday, February 3rd in the theater directly after school.  Click the link to sign up! Movie night link

February 9th-16th there will be a bake sale in all lunch periods.  With that, there will be different genres of music made by African Americans that will play throughout the lunch periods.

BSU is sponsoring a trip to Feed My Starving Children for their community service (date to come later).

On February 24th, the club will be attending the 45th annual African American Heritage Prayer Service to join in community and prayer with African-Americans throughout Chicago.

On MHS Media, check back on Monday’s throughout Black History Month for chronicles of  Black activists that don’t get as much attention as they should.  These activists are the leaders that have influenced those significant figures that you know of today.

We look forward to taking in the wealth of opportunities this month.
