Bolles middle and upper school students enjoyed a soulful, thought-provoking performance by an artistic group affiliated with the Denver-based Mizel Museum. Called “At the Table with Dr. King,” the multifaceted, live performance helped students better understand the American Civil Rights movement and gain valuable lessons in equality and human dignity.

The troupe – which includes professional musicians, singers and orators from “More than Music” – performed their hour-long show in Parker Auditorium on the Bolles Middle School Bartram Campus on February 5. The entire middle school community attended. Junior and senior students on the Bolles Upper School San Jose Campus attended the performance in McGhee Auditorium during Activities period on Feburary 6.

Through music, poetry, historical video footage and Dr. King’s own words, the performance challenged students to engage in creative acts of service and leadership in their communities.

The shows launched Black History Month lessons and awareness initiatives at Bolles. On the upper school campus, students have been learning about notable black individuals in history through updates in the daily bulletin. The first celebrated figure was “W.E.B” DuBois, an American sociologist, historian, civil rights activist, author and editor. In 1909, he co-founded the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People and served as editor of its monthly magazine, The Crisis.
