Three Brown Middle Schools students, Benjamin Leverette, Kamon Baker, and R’Daizyja Bell, recently submitted posters for the Clark-Atlanta University W.E.B DuBois Commemorative Symposium. The year 2013 marks the 50th anniversary of the passing of Dr. William Edward Burghardt Du Bois, and the young artists celebrated his life and scholarship through their art. Each students’ artwork was judged and reviewed by the descendants of Dr. DuBois, Dr. Charles Drew, Madame C.J. Walker and Ida B.Wells-Barnett.
The Brown Middle Schools students placed 1st, 2nd and 3rd in the contest. Each piece of artwork was printed on postcards and sold at the symposium. The postcards are available for purchase at the Hammonds House Museum for the rest of the year.
