While the nation celebrates Black History Month, Sapulpa is enjoying a continued deep connection with African American history in our city – roots that have been growing for well over 100 years. On February 24th, just ten days from Valentines Day, Sapulpa High School’s drama department is excited to host in partnership with our local NAACP chapter an assembly featuring readings of Dr. Martin Luther King’s words spoken by Rick Bruner. The assembly will also feature skits that showcase the talents of our local students, followed by an additional talent showcase.
We are excited to share in the rich history of Sapulpa’s African American roots with our young students as they grow into compassionate activists for continued equality in our community.
