The MBS Black Student Union affinity group has been holding “Lunch & Learn” workshops this week to celebrate Black History Month.
As part of this educational series, students and faculty have been able to explore the following topics:
· Black Music in the Americas — the history of Black music and how it sets the stage for music around the world
· Hip Hop Voices Unleashed — a roundtable discussion of popular hip hop songs and their cultural significance
· Don’t Touch My Hair – a discussion of the cultural significance of hair in the Black community
The workshops were facilitated by Associate Director of DEIB Tahj Valentine as well as Upper School history teacher Andrea King Wilson.
