Themed “Everyone Can Be Successful” Verbena’s kindergarten, first and second grade classes held their Black History Month program Friday at the Verbena Annex.

Each grade level presented a brief presentation on different categories including inventions and politics, music and sports.

Megan Dale and Mindy Whittle’s first grade classes presented music, past and present on Louis Armstrong and Fantasia Barrino.

Dana Davis and Heather Bryant’s second grade classes presented the invention and politics categories and spoke about numerous historical influences including Benjamin Banneker, George Crum, Lonnie Johnson, Madam C.J. Walker, Dr.
