The sixth graders learned about African art and culture, and the history of African Americans in the U.S.

"It's pretty amazing," said Abreanna Hodge. "What I can learn about what kind of, the kinds of Black History I don't know and what I do know I can learn way more."

Fellow student Deon Frank echoed the thought.

"It's important because you get to learn, a lot of opportunities to learn how people been through slavery and how blacks, I mean Africans used to be treated," he said.
