Wax Museum Celebrates Black History

Northglade Honors African American Figures

The halls of Northglade Montessori Magnet School are usually pretty quiet, but not during the Black History Month Wax Museum.

Then, the halls are a filled with chatter, laughter, and learning as older students take on the personalities of some of the best known African Americans in history — and some lesser known historical figures who deserve more attention. Younger students, parents, and other guests can wander the hallways and learn more about black history.

This year’s array of “wax figures” — students dressed up as African American icons who recite a brief bio when a guest touches the black button inked on their hands — included aviator Bessie Coleman, U.S. Supreme Court Justice Thurgood Marshall, gymnast Simone Biles, inventor Granville Woods, President Barack Obama, and civil rights activist Ella Baker.
