More than 30 children from Rosa Parks Community School, ranging from grades four to seven, performed in tribute to National Women's History Month for seniors at the Washington Manor housing complex this past Tuesday.
Students from the local school in Orange presented a rich and soulful performance of poetry, song and dance. Each selection celebrated women artistry to mesh with this year's theme, "Weaving the Stories of Women's Lives."
Miphilove Milord, a student of Rosa Parks Community School, began the program by reciting the renowned poem by the late author and poet, Maya Angelou, titled Phenomenal Woman. Following the famous words, "phenomenal woman, that's me," Rosa Parks Dance Ensemble performed multiple dance routines. The seniors stood on their feet, clapping to the sounds of the mid-tempo song, "Happy" by singer and producer, Pharrell Williams.
"There are so many women who have helped pave the way for the advancement of today's society," said Dr. Walter D. McNeil, Executive Director of the Orange Housing Authority. "I know first-hand how beneficial women are. The women of the Housing Authority are the backbone of the daily operations, ensuring that all procedures are handled properly."
As the students departed, their performances left seniors and staff members of the Orange Housing Authority touched and inspired.
