Carver Black History Celebration honors African-American artists
Carver hosted its Black History Celebration Feb. 15 with a collage of visual art, dance, music and poetry. The chorus performed a powerful rendition of “I’ve Got a Rainbow,” which depicted a slave running away to visit his dying mother. They also performed the spiritual “Wade in the Water.” Our dance team regaled us with energetic African dancing.Orchestra performed “Summertime” from Porgy and Bess and “I’ll Be There” by the Jackson 5. Our orchestra students played “Follow the Drinking Gourd” and a spiritual medly called “Riding the Rails.” In between numbers, select Beta Club members performed poetry by Langston Hughes and Maya Angelou. Truly, our usually rowdy bunch was quiet and attentive throughout this stellar exhibition of Wildcat talent.
