Students in a variety of art forms will perform.

“It’s a celebration of Black history, a celebration of Black art, and a celebration of Black artists,” said Markeise Russell, Assistant Principal.

The show is led by students.

“It means power, strength, community, everything that I think Black people and Black art embody,” said student Arielle Wood

Money from ticket sales will benefit The Chicago Freedom School.
