NAACP members present the Evolution of Dance for the high school students.

On Feb 29, 2024, the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP) hosted the “Many Voices, One Hope” Assembly for the Stroudsburg High School students.

The assembly’s purpose was to bring awareness to Black History Month and the leaders who paved the way for us to be able to celebrate this month. 

During the assembly, members spoke about prominent black figures in history, such as Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., Langston Hughes, John Lewis, and Shirley Chisolm.

NAACP President, Isaiah Louis-Jacques, 12, spoke on the message of the assembly, stating “Many Voices aimed to honor diversity in Stroudsburg and commemorate Black History Month, showcasing the impact of dedicated students collaborating within the NAACP to create positivity.”

Jalani Allen, 12, performed a spoken word poem, “Still I Rise” by Maya Angelou, and Laila Carrol, 10, sang a solo. ESU Students Julianna Grandsoult and Brian De Los Santos showcased a dance duet. 

The assembly ended with an evolution of dance performance that featured Shania Lyn, 11, Dakota Stokes, 12, Nathalie Carolina Rodriguez, 12, Ortia Richards, 11, Milan George, 11, Abena Aidoo, 11, Francesca Mendez, 12, and Kianys Cuevas, 12, Ruben Emmanuel, 11.

Musical selections were performed by several groups, including the SHS jazz band, choir, and a small orchestral group. Ruben Emmanuel, 11, accompanied the choir groups as a pianist.

When asked why the assembly was important, club advisor, Nadeen Edwards, stated, “Stroudsburg has a diverse community of students. This assembly, “Many Voices, One Hope,” brought cultural awareness and understanding, and allowed students to learn about the achievements and struggles of African Americans. The goal of the assembly was to empower students and create a sense of pride. Our students need to know that they should still pursue their goals despite the struggle.”

Edward’s hope for the assembly was to promote diversity and shine a spotlight on the rich contributions of African Americans, which are essential to the school’s curriculum.

“Many Voices, One Hope” signifies the collective movement for peace and unity for all.
