CCCS Commemorates Black History Monty With 'Night of Dreams' and Living Wax Museum

On February 22, 2017,  more  than  60   Chester  Community Charter  School scholars  honored  the  legacy  of influential  African-Americans  at  the  Third  Annual “Night  of  Dreams”  program,  with  performances from  the  West  Campus  brass  ensemble,  the  East  campus dance  team,  and  Sistah  Mafalada,  a “Moko Jumbie” African stilt walker, among others. 

The  program  began  with  a  student  duet  performance  of “Lift  Every  Voice  and  Sing,”  a  song  and poem   written   by   James   Weldon   Johnson,   in   1899,   and   continued   with an   instrumental performance, dance tributes to 1980s and 1990s hip-hop, a 1970s “Motown” fashion show, and a wax  museum  that  included  African-American  historical  and  contemporary  figures  such  as  Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., Angela Davis, Frederick Douglass, Rosa Parks, and others. 

Dr. David Clark, CEO, CCCS, delivered remarks: “Each year, we hold this program to educate our students,  our  families  and  our  community  about  the  many  contributions  African  Americans  have made. At CCCS, we want our students  to know they come from a proud heritage, and  that every day  they  attend  school,  strive  for  excellence,  and  stay  focused  on  achievement,  they  are  making Black History.”

On February 16, 2017, Knowledge Hall hosted a wax  museum  that  included  African-American  historical  and  contemporary  figures  such  as  Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., Angela Davis, Frederick Douglass, Rosa Parks, and others.
