Black History Assembly at Waterford High School


Nikoli Weir, Reporter

On February 9th, Waterford High School had a Black history presentation in which a variety of speakers came and told students about what students can do to push for racial equality at Waterford High School. The students were mostly respectful, but a few people were talking, laughing, and not paying attention. Despite this, the assembly went smoothly, and it seems many students learned from it. There were six panelists and a moderator at both the upperclassmen and underclassmen presentations. Many of the panelists worked for the rental company Enterprise. They gave students tips on how to have difficult conversations about race, on how to defuse tense situations, and spoke a bit about their personal experiences with Black history.
