Patterson celebrates Black History Month with special performance
By Tamika Addison
Members of the Patterson Drama Club and Patterson Dance Team performed for our Black History Month assembly on March 4th in the auditorium. The Patterson Drama Club did a staged reading of poems by Patterson students. These poems were written in Ms. Bell’s African American Literature class and were modeled after James Weldon Johnson’s ” Lift Every Voice and Sing “. The Patterson Dance Team performed a series of pieces which created a timeline from African Dance through modern hip hop. The performance demonstrated how modern hip hop moves evolved from African dance. The invited audience showed enthusiastic appreciation. Stay tuned for more activity performances!
