Black History Month @ Chavez HS

This will be our 3rd Annual Celebration of Black History Month at the Lobo Library. This year we continue our collaboration with the Pan-African Culture Club (PACC). The club is led by Mr. Darrell Mayon (K101), Ms. Devina Fernandez (G105), and Ms. Megan Giles (E106). The PACC will be decorating the hallways and the library window with information regarding Black History. They will also be hosting a Teacher Appreciation luncheon later in the month. Keep an eye out for that!

The Lobo Library will also be collaborating with Dr. Liana Silva (A102). Dr. Silva's class utilized their research skills from our library's resources to create an informative book display about Black History. Check out the photo below or stop by the library to read about their findings. Dr. Silva also helped in bringing in our Black History Month guest speaker, Mr. Robert Ford, the Astros Radio Broadcaster. Mr. Ford is one of two current African-American radio broadcasters for Major League Baseball (MLB), and only the second African American broadcaster to call a World Series. He was hired to work alongside Steve Sparks as the play-by-play commentator on Feb. 13, 2013. Mr. Ford is a 2001 graduate of Syracuse University, where he earned a bachelor's degree in broadcast journalism. Join us on Tuesday, February 5th at 2:30 pm in the Lobo Library to hear about Mr. Ford's experiences as an MLB radio broadcaster. Check out the following article describing Mr. Ford's experience as an MLB radio commentator here: Astros' Ford Breaking Barriers in Radio Booth

For the third year in a row, The Lobo Library will continue the tradition of hosting a panel discussion with student leaders from Texas Southern University (TSU). Last year, PACC members wrote questions to the panel to ask about the importance of Historically Black Universities and Colleges. Prior panel discussions have discussed issues such as what it means to be Black in America today, giving back to your communities, cultural appropriation, colorism across the world, effects of fear among the uneducated, social media effects on race, and so much more. Join us on Feb. 20th after school at 4 pm in the Lobo Library for this year's panel!

During lunch, the Lobo Library will be hosting free screenings of the following films:

  • The Great Debaters, week of Feb. 4th
  • The Hate U Give, week of Feb. 11th
  • Hidden Figures, week of Feb. 18th
  • Black Panther, week of Feb. 25th
Bring your lunch and enjoy a free movie!

Also keep an ear out for the morning announcements as PACC members recite poems written by Black authors and historical tidbits about Black History every Friday in February!
