Black History Month At PHS
Andrew Mouzin

Pembroke Hill is observing Black History Month with several educational opportunities for students, faculty and staff.

  • Second graders will be doing a “Little Leaders” unit in which students will read a short biography about an important Black person in U.S. history; choose a specific trait that best describes this person based on supporting textual evidence; and write a persuasive paragraph about their figure.
  • Several displays on walls in the upper school highlight well-known and lesser-known historical figures in art, science, technology, sports and politics. Click to see images of the displays on our Facebook page.
  • FLIK Independent School Dining is featuring recipes in their lunch offerings shared with them by famous Black chefs. Click here to see a powerpoint video .
  • Freshman English students in Jermaine Thompson's class will study and explicate the "I Have a Dream" speech by Dr. Martin Luther King.

We will continue to share more activities throughout the month on our social media pages, on our website and in our newsletters.
