Seven Hills Parents Share Tuskegee Airmen Presentation with Kindergarteners
In late February, Upper School history teacher and learning specialist Amaris White and Michael Carlock, parents of kindergartener Gabrielle Carlock, spoke via Zoom to kindergarteners in the Early Childhood Center about the Tuskegee Airmen, the first Black military aviators. The lesson was part of Lotspeich’s Black History Month celebration of African American changemakers throughout history. Carlock’s great uncle, Benny Kimbrough, was a member of the group. White and Carlock told kindergarteners the history of the Tuskeegee Airmen, explaining that roughly 1,000 Black airmen served the United States during World War II. Carlock and White took questions from students. Students enjoyed assembling toy planes sent by White and Carlock, as well.
