Youngsters took time to celebrate historic people and show some fashion last week.
Children at the McDuffie Head Start Center celebrated Black History Month Thursday, with tributes and styles at the Hunter Street school.
The event featured close to 50 children from four classes. The kids saluted 20 famous people from Andrew Beard, inventor of two types of plows and a coupler for railroad cars, to major league baseball player Jackie Robinson. The children also delivered black history speeches.
A candle-lighting ceremony paid tribute to the late Bernice Brown. Brown, a city council member, had great impact on the Head Start program, said Ettoniet Anderson, center director.
