The Burning Bush Family Foundation came to visit Brookhaven
Elementary School for our first Annual Black History Month Program.
Renee Joshua-Porter, the Executive Director and Producer of this
Foundation, provided a wonderful assembly in recognition of Black
History Month. The foundation provided a multicultural theatrical
presentation entitled, "The Museum". This rich and interactive story
followed a class on a field trip to a museum where 2 historical figures
of African American descent came to life through song, dance, rap and
prose. Throughout this journey, a teacher takes a group of disinterested
students to a multimedia wax museum where the historical characters
come to life to retell their stories. Performing Artists, Jamel Hudson
(Sammy Davis Jr.) and Regine Williams (Eartha Kitt) displayed and
portrayed these historic African Americans through a live dance and song
Special thanks to Mrs. Nolde, second grade teacher, for assisting in
providing our students with the opportunity to learn and enjoy the
talents of American Africans who have contributed to our history!
