The Janet Collins Story

February 3, 2016

Today at lunch, students watched The Janet Collins Story, a short animated film by Karyn Parsons who runs the non-profit Sweet Blackberry. (Some of you may remember Karyn as Hilary from The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air!)

Janet Collins was the first African American soloist to perform at the Metropolitan Opera. Students recognized the voice of the narrator of this film, Chris Rock.
