Munn's Public School in Oakville hosted last week two performances to honour
Black History Month.
Written and performed by Leslie McCurdy, Grades 4-5 students viewed
The Spirit of Harriet Tubman. It depicts Tubman as an African-American abolitionist slave who helped many escape slavery through the Underground Railroad and find freedom in Canada.
Later, Grades 6-8 students viewed Things my Fore-Sisters Saw, also performed by McCurdy. This introduced students to four Black women who brought about significant social changes in Canadian history.
See and hear what those in attendance learned including why honouring Tubman is important.
