BHS Honoring Peacekeepers Assembly a Great Success
On Thursday, March 7, Berkeley High students attended a special assembly “Honoring Berkeley's Peacekeepers”, featuring Berkeley High School alumnus Dr. Victor Rios, a sociology professor at UC Santa Barbara and author of Punished: Policing the lives of Black and Latino Boys.
The assembly also recognized members of the Berkeley community who have worked to eliminate violence and gun violence in Berkeley, on campus, and in the larger community. The assembly acknowledged the challenges faced by citizens of this city dealing with this complex issue.
BHS Arts and Humanities Academy (AHA) students performed "A Window into Berkeley's Recent History with Violence, posing in scenes as they were described by a narrator. This stellar performance was written by BHS teacher (and assembly organizer) Alan Miller, and directed by dance teacher Lauren Benjamin (5th period Hip Hop).
The students attended the assembly in two groups of 1,500 during a special double 2nd Period.
