Tuesday, February 2, 2016, Renfroe Middle School presented its eighth annual Black History Program in Decatur High School’s, Performing Arts Center.

With the help of teacher and director, Jana Johnson-Davis, sixth, seventh, and eight grade students were able to represent prominent men and women in history while also performing accompanying skits.

“I was so proud of the students,” said Johnson-Davis.

The show included multiple musical selections from the school’s band and chorus.

In the middle of the program, all of the performers field the theater to engage the audience in Stevie Wonder’s “Happy Birthday” for Martin Luther King’s eighty-seventh birthday.

The show ended with a group bow that went from one end of the stage to the other and a standing ovation by the audience.
