Upper School Honors Martin Luther King Jr.'s Legacy
Benjamin upper school students spent the morning of January 12 honoring the legacy of Martin Luther King, Jr. during a celebration in Benjamin Hall.
The assembly was treated to a remarkable vocal performance by Keiarra Slack with accompaniment by Andrew DeFerrari on the piano. The duo sang a medley of songs that included the acclaimed civil rights anthem “We Will Overcome.”
After a brief history of King’s civil rights legacy, the audience enjoyed performances by students from Faith’s Place. The organization is a learning center in West Palm Beach, Florida that provides preschool and after school educational services to the community.
The Faith’s Place music students entertained the audience with steel drums, vocal selections and traditional African dances. Benjamin students rose to their feet and danced along to the group’s rendition of the Jackson Five’s “I Want You Back.”
