‘The journey’s not over’: High-schoolers showcase Black history 

Kentwood — Black history came to life recently at East Kentwood High School, where students educated others through performance, food and presentations.

The program, “A Walk to Freedom: The Journey’s Not Over,” merged music, dancing, theater and more to create a showcase of student talent.

The annual student-created event shares the message that Black history continues and perseveres. 

SNN’s videographer Brett Atwood captured the action and history as it continued to unfold.
