CHES celebrates Black History Month.The Chapel Hill Elementary School media center presented a Black History Wax Museum as part of the school’s Black History Month celebration and its commitment to fostering literacy.

The exhibit features historical covers of Time Magazine showcasing Black history figures, Barbies representing influential African American women, and motivational posters.

An eye-catching balloon display, crafted by paraprofessionals Roslind Agbo and Ajuane Saulsbury, is designed to captivate the curiosity of young readers.

This thoughtfully curated collection aims to provide age-appropriate literature, allowing students to delve into the rich tapestry of our nation's history.

Cameron Sheldon, the media specialist, emphasized the careful selection process.

"We dedicated time to create this display, aiming to spotlight influential African Americans who have significantly shaped our history,” she said. “Our students are enthusiastically embracing the exhibit, and the books are quickly disappearing from the shelves." The display will remain open throughout February, inviting both students and staff to explore and learn more about the impactful individuals showcased.”
