Maximo Elementary School prepared a dramatic Black History Month program for their delighted parents.
ST. PETERSBURG — Maximo Elementary School rounded out February with a spectacular Black History Month celebration. Students practiced after school to perfect their routines, and what they presented had parents cheering.
The hour-long program held in Lakewood High School’s auditorium on Feb. 28 saw dancing, singing, drumming, poetry, Black history figures, and a phenomenal skit of an enslaved man, portrayed by music director Dr. Bernard Parrott, escaping to freedom by communicating with those sending messages by way of African drums.
Principal Moses, Dr. Parrott, teachers, literacy coaches, and of course, the Maximo scholars captured the spirit of Black History Month.
