TAHIRA Brings Freedom Stories to Bullock
GLASSBORO – TAHIRA, a storyteller, poet and musician, brought her show, “Freedom Stories,” to Dorothy L. Bullock School recently. The PTO sponsored this interactive, informative assembly which featured stories of Ruby Bridges, Dr. Martin Luther King and other historical figures for Black History Month.
TAHIRA told the students, “I want to share with you the stories of ordinary people who did extraordinary things to make sure we had laws that were good and just. It is important that we share these stories. It’s important because we all need to be treated fairly.”
TAHIRA delivered the message that while Dr. Martin Luther King was a vital part of African American history, there were many brave and inspiring contributors along the way.
Students Landon Hinricks, Raneer Graves and Katryn Keating help TAHIRA on stage.
TAHIRA uses drums and other instruments to tell her story.
