Newnan High School will host its annual Black History Month Program on Thursday, February 11 from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. in the Newnan High School Auditorium.

This program is free and open to the public to attend. Refreshments will be sold at the event, and donations will be taken to raise money for the Black History Scholarship.

The program will be honoring African American history in the United States and elsewhere in the world. This year’s theme is “United We Stand, Divided We Fall.”

Mr. Bennie Rhodes, NHS Assistant Principal and the Black History Month Program host for past five years said, “This is an opportunity to highlight a lot of things African Americans have done, not only on their own but with others as well.”

Special guests include NHS Chorus, Atkins Elementary and other community music groups outside of the high school. The NHS Spanish Club will attend also.
