Why #DPSBeyond28 - learning about African American history should extend beyond the 28 days in February that has been nationally designated as African American history month. Providing culturally diverse perspectives is our commitment to historically inclusive education for our students and community year-long. Join the #DPSCelebrates / #DPSBeyond28 LIVE events throughout February & March to learn and experience some amazing African American contributions in our local community.
