Welcome to the Black Student Union

February 2017

Along with performances by a few of our students this year’s assembly featured Mr. Henry Brown as a keynote speaker.  Mr. Brown has been a Weston resident for over 40 years.  He has also done extensive research and spoken publically about the history of Blacks in Weston. Mr. Brown has two children who graduated from Weston High School.  He came to share his personal experiences and knowledge of the history of the Civil Rights Movement.

 

 

 

 

WestonMETCO and the Black Student Union hosted the
WHS Black History Day Assembly
Wednesday, February 26, 2014, 9:45-11am
 
Honoring Our Past, Inspiring Our Future
 
Through video clips, music, live performances and readings students highlighted many known and unknown icons and events of the past and present that they felt have had an impact on their lives.  Beginning with slavery and traveling through to the present day, the students put together a presentation that they are proud of and that they feel will evoke thought, inspire deeper conversations about race as well as educate their school community on the many accomplishments of black people.  During the assembly the students presented a brief moment to reflect on the Trayvon Martin incident and the larger message of racial profiling and prejudice as an obstacle for them to overcome.  They  asked that students wear hoodies on the day of the assembly, as it has become the symbol to the nation of the very serious epidemic of racial profiling that takes place and has taken place throughout our country.
