Keonte Beals local author, artist and singer
Today in celebration of African Heritage Month we welcomed Keonte Beals a local author, artist and singer. He started his presentation with the Black National Anthem, "Lift Every Voice and Sing". Then he shared a reading of his book I am Perfectly Me. He took questions about his process as a writer and encouraged the students to follow their dreams. He finished the presentation with a spiritual song that reflects his culture. O'Connell had a rich and exciting educational experience today!
