Black History Month

Black History displays
Visit our Black History displays in the AHS Media Center! Artwork by Decatur artist, Mrs. Pamela Farmer, has been loaned to the school and celebrates black Americans who have contributed to society in all walks of life. Her work is displayed in universities and museums. We are grateful that Mrs. Farmer has allowed us to use her work. Books are also displayed for students to check out and enjoy on a wide range of subjects from the Tuskegee Airmen to the Civil Rights Movement.
