"Be Enough"

On Monday, February 10, at 2:00 P.M., Broome students sponsored the annual Black History program.

 
Presiding over the program was Jada Goode. Danielle Stewart welcomed the audience and introduced the guest speaker Justus Cox and performer Son of Ice.
 
Speaker Justus Cox, a Greenville County elementary school teacher, related stories of his life and challenged students to "be enough" and to overcome the obstacles placed in their paths by others and especially those obstacles they themselves create. He encouraged everyone to prepare for the future. 
 
Son of Ice provided a musical and dance message and impressed all in attendance with his grace and agility. 
 
Other students participating in the program were Ariana Thomas, Rayshawn Simuel, and Yazmin Jeffries, who preformed dramatic readings from selected poems and speeches; Sonnia Eison and Matthew Means, who spotlighted the achievements of influential African American leaders; vocalists Aaliya Armstrong and Emerald Dover; and Dre-Quan Guyton, who told the audience of the contributions of Carter G. Woodson, the Father of Black History. 
 
Black History Committee is a student-led committee sponsored by Jermaine Greene and Charmell Teasley.
