Manual's Black History Month Program

We are excited to announce that duPont Manual's 20th Annual Black Lives Matter Black History...OUR History Celebration will be held virtually during Crimson Hours on February 24th. There will be two programs presented. The first program will be from 10:30 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. The second program will be held from 12 noon to 1:00 p.m.

Each program will be the same, so this gives our students an opportunity to see it. Students must have an opportunity to attend one of the scheduled programs. It's very important that our students are involved with and understand the importance of this history.
