The Unheard Perspectives Showcase is run annually by the HCPSS Elementary Social Studies office, Black Student Achievement Program, and the Gifted and Talented office.
The program is for students in grades 3-5 who volunteer to learn more about black Americans, and answer a given question. This challenging performance-based program has students researching and delving through primary sources like letters, songs, interviews, pictures and maps as well as reading newspaper articles, biographies, and much more as they learn about our history. Part of each project focuses on contextualizing and putting events in reference to others. Students showcase their knowledge through a presentation of a PowerPoint, display, or performance.
The showcase event is held annually in February, in conjunction with Black History Month.
