Throughout February, Niles North celebrates Black History Month with events, videos, and resources given to students and staff. North collaborated with the Black Student Union, sponsored by counselor Kia Pickett, and Students Organized Against Racism, sponsored by educator Doug Williams to bring us these resources and events.
