Black History Month Assembly

Interesting Black History Month assembly this morning. (I know, Black History Month was last month, but we’re a little behind the clock here.) Usually these assemblies consist of performances and readings by Weston students, but this year it was different: the Jubilee Singers from Newton North High School performed several spirituals and gospel numbers, and then we all watched “Far From Home,” an excellent documentary about one of our former Metco students.

Interesting contrasts between Boston and Weston in both contexts. Two examples:
  • the director of the Jubilee Singers attempting to extract enthusiastic non-Weston-like responses from the cool audience

  • a comment in the film about how Weston kids have tutors, evoking a knowing laugh from the audience
