The Black Xperience

By: Trevor Webb

Tomorrow, Louisville Male High School will be attending an event that will allow Male high to school to receive a “taste of the culture” according to Black Student Union president Kara Cunningham(12). That special event will be Male’s Black History Month Program, titled “The Black Xperience.”

Starting with an African drum instrumental, the program will then proceed into a skit that involves a freed man & a prisoner to show the connections between slavery and today’s prison system. “The purpose of this is to show how mass incarceration is the modern day slavery, that the same 13th amendment that enslaved our ancestors, still enslaves some today.” Cunningham adds.

The program will also include a “Black Xcellence” skit, with a distinguished black man coming on stage to discuss all the good accomplishments in the black community, such as inventors and their inventions, one being Sarah Boone and the ironing board. Another example in this skit will be a focus on madam CJ Walker, the innovator & entrepreneur of the African American hair care system. The program will include several hair models, showing how hair is a major part of the culture.

The program will also focus on the importance of Historically Black Colleges and Universities, also known as HBCUs. “I think it is important that we acknowledge HBCUs in the program because they are a part of our culture as well as our education,” states Jasmine Briggs(12) who plans to attend a HBCU in the fall after graduating from Male.

Some students involved include Ariel Howard(12), Kyah Wallace, Gene Brown(12), Ashton Defreeze, Karleigh Hurt(10), and Anay Richardson(12). Preparation for this program has been occurring for months, with lots of hard work put into it in order to make it the best it can be. Madelyn Lane(12) added, “although I am not a minority I understand how important this is to them and I have seen my friends in Black Student Union work hard on this project so I am excited to see how it turns out.”

Cunningham states, “This program is important because there is a lack of teaching of Black history and culture in Male High’s classrooms. The school population is diverse, but the classroom lessons aren’t. We need more multicultural representation at Male. This is the one time we get to give the school a taste of Black History, and the time is now.”
