Black History Book Discussion

On February 22 at 12:00  in the N.A. Jenkins Board Room, students  participated in the annual Black History Book Discussion  lead by Mrs. Bridget Sledge and Mr. Julius Pempleton.  
Mr.  Pempleton discussed Success Runs In Our Race by George C. Fraser.  This book is a 
complete guide to effective Networking in the Black Community. 
Mrs. Sledge discussed Edith Jackson  which is a book from a trilogy by Rosa Guy. The book is about a black teenage girl who struggles to keep her family together. Students not only heard two fantastic book talks but also munched on a gourmet lunch as they listened to each book.  Students were given the opportunity to participate by asking questions and stating their ideas and opinions.
