Guiding Tomorrow's Hearts and Minds

Black History Month

This February, we celebrated Black History Month by asking the St. Matthew’s Community about the Black Americans who have inspired them. We gathered their responses and photos, and posted them in our Lobby.

We asked our community to think about a Black American who has inspired them, motivated them, taught them something new, caused them to imagine things, even themselves and their own life, in a new way. Some were famous around the world and some famous within the school - but all influential in their own way!

We hope these words and images guide students and our entire community to delve more deeply into knowing the complexity of Black History and what it teaches us as Americans.

There are more than we could show here - you can check them all out in our lobby.
