Black History Month assembly allows students and teachers to reflect on race in America
Nathan Rich and Michael Robinson, Core Staff, reporter

 After the incredibly turbulent events of 2020, the SLUH community gathered for their annual celebration of Black History Month this past Monday, with the hope of reflecting on the progress and setbacks that have happened since last summer. 

This year, the event looked very different from prior years, which often featured large, all-school assemblies, discussion panels, and speakers. Last Monday, Black History Month event took on a much simpler form, as students reflected on two Voices of SLUH interviews with the members of their homeroom. As with all things this year, planning the event was a challenge, but the ACES Moderators felt lucky to have the work of seniors Albert Harrold and Carter Fortman, who recorded a discussion that was used during the Black History Month presentation.
