Jefferson HS Students Repeat March of Solidarity Honoring Black History Month

January 26, 2017

For Immediate Release 

Who: 600 Jefferson High School juniors

What:

Students will march from Jefferson High School to AMC WestShore movie theaters to watch the movie Hidden Figures, based on a true story. 

When:

Monday, January 30, 8:00 a.m.

Where:

Students will leave from the front of Jefferson High School at 8:00 a.m. Jefferson High School is located at 4401 W. Cypress St., Tampa. The students expect to arrive at the AMC WestShore by 8:30 a.m. 

Why:

Many Americans are familiar with the astronaut heroes of the 20th century space race. But several of the NASA researchers who made space flight possible were women. Among them were African American women who played critical roles in the aeronautics industry. Jefferson High School students will make the connection to this historical event. In addition, students will be able to connect math and science to viable careers.

How:

Students primarily enrolled in American History and African American Studies courses will take part in the march.
