The students of our CTE TV Broadcasting class – STUDIO 652 NEWS – are celebrating Black History Month by producing short biographies on pivotal contributors to society.   The only parameter the students had when choosing their subjects was to choose someone that may not be as well known as the men and women that normally come to mind.
