To celebrate Black History Month, kindergarten students at Northeast School in the hosted a special musical performance for family members and peers.

For the celebration, each class collectively dressed in the same color to represent colors of the rainbow. Under the direction of music teacher Nicole Altamura, students sang a variety of songs that represented unity, culture and historical figures in black history. Featured songs included “Sing about Martin,” arranged by Jackie Silberg, “The World is a Rainbow” by Greg & Steve, and the students’ version of Addison Road’s “This Little Light of Mine.”

While singing, students used hand gestures and body movements that coincided with the song lyrics.
