Fresno Unified’s Black Student Unions (BSU) will host the ninth annual Black History Month Program in partnership with Purposed II Praise Dance Studio. The event will launch cultural and educational activities for February organized by representatives from BSU in collaboration with students from across the district.
The Black History Month Program offers a fun-filled evening of cultural entertainment and presentations, including the Black National Anthem, a tribute to African drumming, African American and Black poets, history of tap and the Harlem Renaissance, dancing and historical culture education. The theme this year is “Our History, Legacy, Strength.” Tickets for the show are $1. All proceeds will support the BSU clubs.
“This is annual show is not to be missed, celebrating Black history and showcasing the talent of our students. This year involves students from throughout the district as well as special guests from our community,” said Superintendent Bob Nelson.
