Grimes School continues to celebrate Black History Month by honoring the Apollo Theater

Scholars at Grimes School continued to honor February’s Black History Month with an extraordinary presentation featuring song, dance, and poetry on Wednesday March 20, 2024.  

The theme of this performance was ‘Apollo at Grimes,’ honoring the Apollo Theater in Harlem, a significant cultural institution throughout African American history. To this day, the theater serves as a platform for many influential performers and artists.  

“For the month of February, I was highlighting the Apollo and the Harlem Renaissance,” said Cynthia Freeman, music teacher at Grimes School. “Out of the Apollo, I talked about a lot of great performers that came out of the Apollo, so the kids can be familiar with a lot of our icons.” 

Throughout the show, students honored historical African American figures, such as Ella Fitzgerald, Maya Angelou, and Michael Jackson.
