Public Schools Across the Territory Celebrate Black History Month

Black History Month extends far beyond a month-long observance; it embodies a year-round appreciation of the past that has profoundly influenced the present and paved the way for the future.

It’s a time to celebrate with immense pride, acknowledging a legacy shaped by trailblazers, icons, leaders, pioneers, creators, originators, torchbearers, and vanguards. Embracing this cherished tradition, public schools across the territory eagerly participated in Black History Month activities, honoring the history and legacy of those who have made remarkable contributions to our societal fabric, the V.I. Education Department announced.
