The artwork of two Arthur L. Johnson high school students, Morgana Haub and Emily Dumansky, is currently being featured as part of the I Learn America exhibit at Kean University. According to the I Learn America Initiative, “These novice and accomplished creators seek to foster community conversations that raise public awareness, breakdown stereotypes, and celebrate diversity.”

Students watched the I Learn America documentary in their Holocaust and Genocide Studies class taught by Mr. Franklin Stebbins.  The documentary follows students attending the International School in Brooklyn as they not only adjust to school but also adjust to life in America. After watching the film, students were encouraged to create a series of images that allowed them to discuss their experiences of identity, inclusion, and diversity.

“Looking at the value of art and the process of its creation is a terrific way to allow students to showcase thoughts and ideas that words simply may not do justice. Looking at historical examples of artwork from the Holocaust to allowing students to create their own images was a unique way to not only promote discussion, but also reflection on historical and current events,” stated Stebbins.

Help Save Sabattis Adventure Camp for Our Boy Scouts

September 11, 2017

We’ve been camping at that campsite every summer for years, far longer than our current scouts or their older brothers can remember.

Blackfoot is a very ...
