Norfolk Academy's CARE Club has been providing valuable education this month, Women's History Month.
Club members placed posters around campus that teach about a number of women who have made an impact in society both in the United States and around the world. Among the women highlighted are Jane Bolin, the first Black female judge in the United States; Shirley Chisholm, the first Black woman to serve in the U.S. House of Representatives; Amani Ballour, a Syrian pediatrician; and Frida Kahlo, an artist who made about 200 paintings in her life.
The posters even include a QR code so students can do further research.
This project continues the educational work from the club. Members also put posters highlighting African Americans around the halls in celebration of Black History Month in February. In January, they taught about Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.'s life, as well as other leaders, like the 14th Dalai Lama, who adopted his messages. That was part of the Season of Nonviolence, a worldwide campaign that begins January 30 and concludes April 4.
