The theme of our Black History Month celebration in Hillsborough has been The Radiant Child — inspired by a children's book about Jean-Michel Basquiat, one of the best-known African-American contemporary artists, who discovered his extraordinary talent for painting as a youth.

At a special assembly on Friday, February 9, we celebrated radiance in our Nueva community. Students learned about the childhoods of notable African-Americans and their early journeys to identify their own talents, and their academic and creative passions.
