Crestwood and YARRD (Youth against Racial and Religious Discrimination) celebrated Black History Month this week with an assembly that featured Shaun Boothe. Shaun is an award-winning hip hop artist who has visited Crestwood a number of times in the past, including at our human rights symposia. Shaun brought the students a powerful message of hope and unity, urging them to look to themselves and to one another as they build bridges between and within their communities. Shaun spoke eloquently and energetically, rapping about the contributions of prominent black figures such as Muhammed Ali, Oprah, Martin Luther King and Obama. Crestwood students had a great time, and learned an important lesson!
