What a fantastic assembly today in honor of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. The middle school SOCA club (Students of Color and Allies) brought together song, spoken word, history, personal stories and a favorite Evergreen tradition, the Montgomery Bus Boycott skit, all promoting a key message. To borrow Dr. King's words: We will do our part to judge others not "by the color of their skin, but by the content of their character."
To kick off the assembly, a new middle school group, Evergreen Ensemble Singers, sang Ella's Song, a piece Sweet Honey in the Rock has performed. Next, SOCA members briefly introduced the work of important social justice activists, both past and present.
Then, Evergreen teacher Judith Hart—recently retired from her long-held role as preschool teacher, and now our early-childhood art specialist—presented her famous bus boycott skit, this year featuring 1st graders.
