LaurelHurst residents recognizes Black History Month with celebrationPublished 4:04pm Wednesday, February 27, 2013
Laurel Hurst residents recognized Black History Month with a celebration of music, food and trivia.
The music was provided by sisters Alberta Lee and LaurelHurst employee Dianne Brown. The ladies sang “We Shall Overcome,” “The Battle Hymn of the Republic,” “Lift Every Voice and Sing” and “My Country Tis of Thee.”
Selected portions were read from Martin Luther King Jr.’s famous “I Have a Dream” speech. Later residents enjoyed pinto beans and cornbread while answering trivia questions about black history. One resident said he was disappointed only because the music didn’t last longer.
