IHS Mosaic Club shines in Black History Month video series
Posted on 02/02/2021

Irondequoit High School students and staff, in collaboration with the “Our Voices” Project, and E.R.A.S.E. are proud to present the first of a four-part video series in honor of Black History Month. The series features four lesser-known historical figures, and one per week will be featured in February. Guided by advisors and IHS counselors, Teisha Maldonado and Jenna Zahariev, the Mosaic Club worked on this project in research, writing and video production.

“We couldn’t be more excited for our students and school,” Maldonado said. “Our students put in a lot of work and it shows.” Thanks to West Irondequoit CSD’s Director of Media Services, Jake Honan, for his support and for their vision and passion, special thanks to Jackie McGriff and Debbie Alvarez from the Our Voices Project and Courtney Shouse from E.R.A.S.E. (Eliminating Racism And Seeking Equity).

IHS students who participated were: Marah Ali, Selena Eyob, Justin Connor, Lorden Grant, Liliana LiPera, Tyleea Panye-Harley, Catherine Robinson, Noah Totter and Traci Williams.

Part I is about Maria Stewart (portrayed by IHS senior Tyleea Panye-Harley). Stewart was a female activist who used her voice to advocate for Black Rights and freedom.
