Knightdale Students Perform For Black History Month

During lunch, the students of Knightdale High were surprised by a performance from Mrs. Cathy Will’s dance class and Mrs. Nicole Gibb’s theatre class. The event was dedicated to Black History Month. It took place in the cafeteria on March 11, with the students performing all four lunches.

The gig opened up with performances from Mrs. Will’s dance class. The young ladies danced to “Wade In The Water,”by Alvin Ailey’s musical production Revelations. In the middle of the performance, the dancer carried out a large blue sheet to represent water. When they danced through the water, it represented their moving to become a better person. The students had been practicing the routine for about three weeks. The reason of the performance was to pay a tribute to Alvin Ailey and to celebrate Black History Month.

After the dance, Mrs. Gibb’s theatre class performed their own act, describing the segregation of the different races. In the play, four friends went to eat lunch, but sat in the white people section. They were being forced to leave, except for the white girl that was sitting with the black students. All four students refused to leave and demanded to be served. At the lunch counter, two white girls began to harass the students and began to throw food items at them. The students remained seated. The play ends as all the students and teacher involved in the play hold hands and chant, “We just want to be served.” Although the play is not based on a true story, it is based on several true events that occurred. Gibbs, the theatre arts teacher, had given the prompt to her students, who wrote the dialogue and rehearsed the play for three weeks. Makala Berry, a junior in theatre arts, recalled being very nervous to perform in front of the students, but she continued with her role and kept going on, avoiding distractions. Mrs. Gibbs said, “The goal of this play is to raise cultural awareness in the school to make sure everyone is knowledgeable of Black History month as well as spreading awareness of Black History Month.” Kiara Sandoval, a freshman who saw the play, said her favorite part was when the students stood together and refused to leave. Sandoval said, “They stood together even though they knew what was coming, and with their actions they changed the world.”
