FR&A Slide Show: MacAfee Road School Students Present ‘Living Museum’ For Black History, Women’s History Months

Students at MacAfee Road School on Feb. 28 celebrated Black History and Women’s History month with a “Living Museum” program.

During the half-hour presentation, students in the Kindergarten to 4th Grade school portrayed luminaries raging from Ameila Earhart to Boker T. Washington.

The students dressed as their characters, then recited facts about their lives.

Getting a special honor was Somerset resident Richard Barber, a veteran of the civil rights movement and founder of Penny Lovers of America, a charity which collects pennies for student scholarships. Barber was portrayed during the presentation by Darnell Marche, a 3rd grade student.

This is the eighth year the school has put on a “Living Museum,” said teacher Stacey Resnick, who worked on the committee with Kim Rollinson, Laura Franzi and Michael Hall.

“Every year we change it, do something a little different,” she said. “Next year, we’ll focus on New Jersey, because it’s good to have pride in our state.”

Barber said he was honored by the tribute to him.

“This is great,” he said. He said this was the first year his schedule allowed him to attend.

“I’m very happy to be here,” he said.
