On April 24, we hosted 32 high school students for our annual "Language Arts" conference. This year, students from East St. Louis, Collinsville, Granite City, and O'Fallon participated. The conference included arts activities focusing on haiku, visual note-taking, poems/raps, and comic books. As always, we also coordinated a book fair.
The conference provided us with chances to involve black boys in arts and humanities activities.
