Today is the anniversary of Dr. Martin Luther King's birth, but the Ann Arbor Public Schools commemorated the event yesterday, with an in-service afternoon program for teachers and administrators at Pioneer High. Following presentations by Supt. Harry Howard, Asst. Supt. Robert Potts, and Prof. James Standifer of the U-M Music School there was a program by a jazz quartet of local musicians, which included Pioneer High teacher Robert Elliott on drums. The remainder of the program was furnished by artists of the New Black Repertory Company, including dancers, shown above in "African Welcome Dance." Other company members presented poetry and song to honor Dr. King. The company has also scheduled public appearances Tuesday, Wednesday, Friday and Saturday nights next week at Mack Elementary School. (Staff photos by Jack Stubbs)
