In the Fall of 2020 NECS embarked on a journey to educate, empower, and build community through learning about history. In a time of racial unrest, strength and resilience comes from knowing our history. NECS students have engaged in the exploration of African and African- American history, anthropology, and sociology over the past few months. Melanin Magic! focuses on educating and uplifting students through song, dance, and spoken word. The production will highlight the survival and resilience of people of color and celebrate our common humanity.
