BHS Malcolm X Awards Banquet!
All are welcome as we celebrate "Mama Washington" and More!
Celebrating 50 years of African American Studies at Berkeley High School!
Please join the BHS African American Studies Department (AASD) in the final featured event for this semi-centennial celebration! In connection with the birthday celebration of the great Malcolm X, we will be honoring the giants among us:
· Naomi-Johnson-Diouf, also known as “Mama Washington”! She will be retiring this year as the Chair of African American Studies Department who personified the legendary Afro-Haitian Dance Department of BHS. Come help us celebrate!
· Former School Board Director, Mrs. Karen Hemphill, after serving 12 consecutive years fighting for equity in BUSD
· Last but not least, we cannot let this moment pass without honoring Rev. Dr. Robert McKnight who served as a Teacher and Chair of the African American Studies Department for at least three decades!
We are excited to wrap up this 50-year celebration with this BLACK TIE/African Attire Affair. Expect Great Food, Dancing, & Good Times!
