The seventh graders researched enslavement in the colonies circa 1680-1790 and wrote the most most moving monologues based on remains at the African Burial Ground National Monument.
Then professional actors performed their work.
It was a beautiful day in education! Thanks to Melissa Murray-Mutch for her partnership and to actors, Lawrence Floyd, Lynnette R. Freeman, Andy Lucien, classroom teacher Rob Spat, the Woodrow Wilson Arts Integrated School PTO, and the Union City Board of Education.
ASP Education makes history meaningful.
