Emceed by Mrs. Byrd, Edmund W. Miles’ annual performance featured music, dancing, poetry and, of course, some history in the school’s auditorium. The event was attended by district administrators, board of education members, and faculty and staff members.

Middle school student Joshua Winfield informed the audience about the significance of Black History Month through his portrayal of African American preacher Nat Turner. The middle school’s Jazz Ensemble, under the direction of Mr. Bonasera, performed a wonderful rendition of “Avenue Swing” by Mike Collins-Dowden. Amityville’s Step Team, under the direction of Ms. Coghiel, performed several routines including a captivating dance to “Glory” by Common and John Legend. Students also portrayed several historical African American icons, both from the past and present. Other performances featured “Lift Every Voice and Sing” by James Weldon Johnson, a March on Selma, SLAM Poetry, and Breaking Barriers.
