The Library of Congress, National Archives and Records Administration, National Endowment for the Humanities, National Gallery of Art, National Park Service, Smithsonian Institution and United States Holocaust Memorial Museum join in paying tribute to the generations of African Americans who struggled with adversity to achieve full citizenship in American society.

As a Harvard-trained historian, Carter G. Woodson, like W. E. B. Du Bois before him, believed that truth could not be denied and that reason would prevail over prejudice. His hopes to raise awareness of African American’s contributions to civilization was realized when he and the organization he founded, the Association for the Study of Negro Life and History (ASNLH), conceived and announced Negro History Week in 1925. The event was first celebrated during a week in February 1926 that encompassed the birthdays of both Abraham Lincoln and Frederick Douglass. The response was overwhelming: Black history clubs sprang up; teachers demanded materials to instruct their pupils; and progressive whites, not simply white scholars and philanthropists, stepped forward to endorse the effort.

By the time of Woodson’s death in 1950, Negro History Week had become a central part of African American life and substantial progress had been made in bringing more Americans to appreciate the celebration. At mid–century, mayors of cities nationwide issued proclamations noting Negro History Week. The Black Awakening of the 1960s dramatically expanded the consciousness of African Americans about the importance of black history, and the Civil Rights movement focused Americans of all color on the subject of the contributions of African Americans to our history and culture.

The celebration was expanded to a month in 1976, the nation’s bicentennial. President Gerald R. Ford urged Americans to “seize the opportunity to honor the too-often neglected accomplishments of black Americans in every area of endeavor throughout our history.” That year, fifty years after the first celebration, the association held the first African American History Month. By this time, the entire nation had come to recognize the importance of Black history in the drama of the American story. Since then each American president has issued African American History Month proclamations. And the association—now the Association for the Study of African American Life and History (ASALH)—continues to promote the study of Black history all year.

Stacey Happenings 

Stacey Homecoming Court 2019

by: Sara Kinney, junior

 

            With twinkling city lights and skylines elegantly decorating the room to fit the theme of Romance in the City, the homecoming dance was bound to be a magical night for all who attended. The night was made extra special for the eight who were crowned as members of the homecoming court. King Justin Factuar and Queen Kale’La Wells reigned over the dance with Prince Larry Lacour and Princess Lila Lowrance. Duke Mark Dombrowski and Duchess Valeria Zamora-Martinez danced while Marquess Terry-Shay Martin and Marchioness Amber Penton celebrated their titles. Congratulations to all who won a place on the court!

Homecoming Basketball Games

by: Rylie Dow, Senior

 

Our Stacey Basketball season is in full swing and the varsity teams are pushing to secure their spots in the playoffs. This year’s homecoming games were played against the La Pryor Bulldogs. The games kicked off with the JV boys team putting their heart into every shot, but in the end the Bulldogs took the win. Homecoming night then moved on to a very close and passion filled match between the Varsity girls teams. Ending in a final score of 44-40 with the Bulldogs on the winning side. Each quarter was fought with pride and every point was made with a purpose. The Lady Eagles really gave them a run for their money.

At this point the Bulldogs were feeling pretty good with two wins under their belt but the Stacey Varsity boys team took the court by storm ending the night with a score of 59-47 taking the win from the Bulldogs! Senior, Dejon Johnson, led the team with 18 rebounds, 15 points, and 4 assists! Junior, Gabe Hilman, performed spectacularly with a total of 24 points, 12 rebounds, and 4 assists. The night as a whole was filled with overwhelming amounts of school spirit. With each point scored for all three teams the Eagles crowd blew up in an uproar of cheer. The homecoming games for the 2019 school year are definitely ones for the books.

S2S Lunch Bunch

Written by :  Justin Factuar – S2S Member - Senior

 

On Tuesday, January 29, S2S hosted their monthly Lunch Bunch event. They invited all of the new high school students to come eat their lunch with the s2s, as well as participate in a few activities. We had an amazing turnout at this month’s Lunch Bunch, hosting the event for over twenty new high school students! Aside from just general socializing, S2S also had many “Would You Rather” questions for these students such as, “Would you rather be able to talk with the animals or speak all foreign languages?” We all had an amazing time. To further make it an overall better experience, S2S also served cupcakes as a small treat for everyone to enjoy.

Poetry by Stacey Sophomores 

Night

 

Meya Mickens 10th grade

 

The night fell

Like a stone in the lake

The stars ignited

My breath it did take

I’m the one with the dark

We show little light

Hope hurts us both

Like a nasty bite

I fear like the moon as it’s afraid to shine

The moon and I are peasants

We fall short of divine

But then the night fades

And the sun will arise

And again I hide

The night behind my eyes

untitled 

 

Hailey Barentine 10th grade

 

Passed me by

As if I were a ghost

Going to a new crowd

I’ve never seen before

I guess they’re better

Than that one friend

Who would’ve been there till the end.

I guess friendships break and bend.
