Northwest Junior High School held its annual Black History Program Monday.
The event was to celebrate the numerous significant contributions from African-Americans throughout history.
"We feel as though all of our students need recognition. They are a very diverse group and certainly we don't want to omit any particular ethnic group as far as the contributions that have been made," said Principal Curt Pouncey.
Northwest Junior High School has been holding this event for the last 10 years.
