BIG YARD II REVIEW
by CAHS Reflections Staff
The Charlotte Amalie High School Black History Committee presented the second annual Big Yard on Friday April 7 in the parking lot adjacent to the CAHS auditorium.. The committee is chaired by Me. Freeman of the Art Department. The Big Yard is a cultural celebration that is geared toward making Black History a year round celebration, as well as to promote our Caribbean heritage. The festivities began at 7:30 a.m. with a Caribbean breakfast for the school’s faculty and staff. The breakfast menu consisted of cornmeal pap, dumb bread, Johnny cakes, fritters, stewed saltfish,ham,pick up salt fish, corned beef, eggs, cheese, fish,beef soup, juices,bush tea, and fruit salad. It continued at 8:30 with the traditional "ole time" games, which were held on the CAHS track field. The games played were marbles, tee-toe–tum, ring games, hoople races, jacks, and tire races.
At 10 a.m. there were cultural displays for viewing at the parking lot. The displays included the two wheel barrow, broom making, caning, sugar cake, and dumb bread making demonstrations, basket weaving and crochet. A special display was prepared in honor of the late Cyril Emmanuel King. The display featured pictures depicting pictures various aspects of his life and senior Dormosi Bazille was a splendid replica of the silver-haired King. The celebration continued through lunch time with various selections played by the CAHS Steel Band Ensemble. The lunch menu consisted of fried fish, Johnny cake, barbecue chicken, and side orders. The second annual Big Yard ended with storytelling and a puppet show. The puppets were made by Miss Denise Humphrey’s Drama students. By and large, the Big Year II was a success. We at CAHS are looking forward to next year’s Big Yard.
