Black History Month

On this date in the year 1989, DJ Jazzy Jeff and the Fresh Prince won the first rap Grammy for the hit single “Parents Just Don’t Understand.”

Washington State politician George Fleming was born on February 22, 1937, in Dallas, Texas. He started post-secondary education at the University of Washington, Seattle.  While attending the University, Fleming was running back and kicker for the Huskies and was part of the 1960-61 team that won the Rose Bowl in Pasadena, California. Fleming scored the first points with a 44-yard field goal which was at that time the longest in Rose Bowl History.

In 1968, Fleming was elected to the Washington House of Representatives.  Two years later in 1970, he was the first African American to be elected to the Washington State Senate.  While in the Senate he served as Vice-Chair of the Democratic Caucus from 1973 to 1980 and as Caucus Chairman from 1980 to 1988.  While in office, Fleming was an advocate for the underprivileged, a state Martin Luther King Day holiday, control of illicit drugs, improvements in the quality of education, small business and economic development, and civil rights.  He also fought to improve the quality of nursing homes for senior citizens and was an advocate of low-income housing and emergency meals and shelter for the homeless.  George Fleming retired in 1990 after twenty-two years of service in the state legislature.

Black Excellence Week

Some CHS staff are repping movers and shapers of Black History that you may or may not have heard of. Come to the front office to pick up a playing card and try to find the staff that matches your icons. Look for staff with Black Excellence name tags on and keep an eye out for Black Excellence posters near classrooms and office areas for clues. If you find all of your icons, turn in your finished card, with your name and student ID number on it, to Gene Chism in F43 during a free/passing period by 3 pm on Friday to get entered into a raffle for a prize. Good luck!
