Africa West tout art talents at Douglass High

{/literal}{include file="blk:educationstationblog_header"}{literal}

Douglass High School was alive with art on Saturday as students from Kindergarten through twelfth grade participated in the first ever program for all of Oklahoma City Public Schools Region 1 schools.

Africa West was an opportunity for the predominately black schools located in northeast Oklahoma City, Spencer and Midwest City to celebrate the “African-American imprint.”

If parents have any photos from the event – whether it was the Thelma Parks Elementary students dancing or one of the high schoolers belting out the theme song from Rent – send them my way and I’ll try to post them on this blog:
