RVHS performs Harlem Renaissance projects


River Valley High School students performed “Art of the Harlem Renaissance” in a “Night of the Museum” theme inspired by the movie. Paintings from the time period were acted out. Pictured are Kaylee Shultz and Tyler Mayne, sophomores. Dr. Denise Shockley at the University of Rio Grande provides local history and English teachers with professional development material called “Landmark Moments.” Teachers then take the material back to their classrooms and engage students in projects. Students in Ms. McClung, Mr. Walker and Mr. Nolan’s classes performed such projects every year before holiday break. Themes this year included music, art, poetry of the Harlem Renaissance as well as projects covering the Great Migration, Jim Crow laws and the Resistance.
