The Black History show is soon returning to Seminole High School. Members of the Black History Committee have been preparing for the show, which will showcase various acts dealing with black history.

Member of Black History Committee Junior Mark Rey says, “I believe that the Black History Show benefits the students by getting insight on who we are and what we stand for. During recent years, we focused on many artists, activists, and even writers, through the talent of our students, who allow us to embrace who we are today.”

In addition to having planned and hosted their Dinner with Langston on Jan. 28, the club prepared for auditions for the show. The dinner provided a majority  of the funding for the show.

Sign-ups for auditions were Jan. 8 through Jan. 14, and the audition schedule was released by Ms. Lashelle Guy on Jan 19. Auditions for the Black History Show were held Jan. 20 in KWC from 1:30-5:30 p.m.

Member of the Black History Committee Junior Cavina Rushing says, “I am really looking forward to participating in the show because I think just the process is so informative and rich in so much unknown African American culture.”

The committee is also deciding and making plans for the theme of this year’s show.

Junior Sagrario Suarez says, “I attended the Black History show last year and really enjoyed the rich history, so I’m looking forward to all they have planned for this year.”

Rushing says, “Seeing the whole show come together will be so rewarding and educational.”

The show will take place in the KWC auditorium on Feb. 20 at 7 p.m. Viewings will take place during school on Friday the 19th during second, third, and fourth period for students and staff.
