Black History Month Celebration this Saturday
Posted on 01/29/2020
The Appleton Area School District’s Black Student Union presents the second annual Black History Month Celebration on February 1, 2020. This year’s theme is “Strong Roots, Amazing Achievements”. This event is free and open to the public.

Highlights of the event include a welcome from Wisconsin State Superintendent Carolyn Stanford Taylor, a keynote from Wisconsin Lieutenant Governor Mandela Barnes, awards presentation, performances by our Black Student Union, and a free soul food dinner catered by Cozzy Corner.

Carolyn Stanford Taylor is the first African-American state superintendent in Wisconsin’s history. As Wisconsin's chief state school officer and leader of the Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction, she is committed to building on the vision of "Every Child a Graduate, College, and Career Ready," and advancing educational equity.

Mandela Barnes serves as Wisconsin’s 45th Lieutenant Governor. He is the first African-American to serve as a Lieutenant Governor in Wisconsin, and the second African-American to ever hold statewide office.

The event will be held from 3 - 6 p.m. on Saturday, February 1 at Appleton North High School, 5000 North Ballard Road, Appleton.
