Long Beach Middle School students have been designing displays as an early tribute to Black History Month. Under the guidance of staff members Caroline Espinet, Ronnie Myles and Ama Darkeh, they have honored important individuals such as Martin Luther King., Jr and John Lewis, and also identified Historically Black Colleges and Universities. 

Displays are also being developed as supporting components to sixth grade studies of Africa as "the cradle of civilization" and eighth grade lessons on the Harlem Renaissance. Throughout the month of February, students will enter the middle school to music that celebrates the talents of Black and African American singers, songwriters, composers and musicians.
