Jecorey Arthur takes students on a journey through music history

On February 10, award-winning teacher, musician, and activist Jecorey “1200” Arthur shared his musical talents and knowledge with lower and middle school students during a morning assembly. As part of Black History Month, Mr. Arthur took students on a journey through the history of black music in America, including African drumming, blues, jazz, funk, R&B, hip hop, and more. He invited students on stage to help play several instruments and even taught them a few dances! Mr. Arthur emphasized that American popular music has been profoundly influenced by black artists and that black history is just American history. 
We are grateful that support for this visit was provided by the KCD Fine Arts Guild!
