BCC-RosarioBlackHistory-104

The Carlos Rosario School is hosting its Black History Month celebration, 9:30 a.m., Feb. 27 at 1100 Harvard Street, N.W. Washington, D.C.

The event will highlight the diverse heritage of their African, Afro-Latino and African American students through student-led performances in dance, song and poetry. Students Adenike Adeliyi, from Nigeria, and Mohammed Mohammed, from Tanzania, will emcee. Mohammed was an electrician and tour guide on the island of Zanzibar and wishes to become an electrical engineer. Adenike is a passionate and talented designer who learned to design and sew clothing decades before she even learned to read thanks to literacy classes at the Carlos Rosario School. Adenike has also created clothing that will be worn on stage and be on display during the event.
