  •   e1enac Did you know that the 1927 subway model was designed to have 3 cars attached together? Also, although the cars used regular light bulbs, the threads were specially designed so that they would not fit into home lamps if riders stole them. 1w

e1enac It's #NYCDOETeenThursdays at the Apollo Theater where P.S. 279! This semester, students are capturing the oral history of the Apollo to inform their understanding of life in Harlem and the Theater's impact, then interpreting those narratives into a theatrical performance. Do you know Billy "Mr. Apollo" Mitchell? The 7th and 8th graders at P.S. 279 do! 2mon
  •   e1enac "He says, 'There are people inside this theater --' I said, 'It's the Apollo Theater.' He says, 'Yeah, there are people in there rehearsing for a show, and they're going to need somebody to get their coffee, their newspapers, their shoes shined, their clothes pressed, and if you run these errands for then, they'll give you a little tip, you know? A little money.'... 2mon

e1enac As the Fall program of #NYCDOETeenThursdays ended today, I joined MS 343 & the Schomburg Center for Research in Black Culture to explore the ideas of freedom and emancipation through the art of movement. These 7th & 8th graders engaged in thoughtful discussions about resistance, bravery, and public opinion. Then, they inspired us with their expressive tableaus. Didn't you know that an artful response can impact public opinion? 4mon
