TOMORROW: The VCP Virtual Black History Month Program will be released 🙂

Photos from Veritas College Preparatory Charter School's post 02/26/2021

Tonight we celebrate our youth! Amariyanna Copeny AKA as “Mari” or “Little Miss Flint” is a youth activist from Flint, Michigan who is known for raising awareness about the Flint Water Crisis. Amaryanna was just 8 years old when she wrote a letter to President Obama asking him or First Lady Michelle Obama to meet with her and other Flint residents who were preparing to watch their governor Rick Snyder testify before congress on why 100,000 Flint residents had been consuming contaminated drinking water. The water was brown, with dangerous levels of bacteria and lead. This resulted in residents developing Legionnaires' disease that killed 12 people. Another 6,000-12,000 children may face health complications in the future from the amount of lead they were exposed to.

Her selfless letter earned her a meeting with President Obama that went viral and President Obama authorized $100 million to repair Flint’s water system.

Together with the non-profit org Pack Your Back, Amaryianna has handed out over $700,000 bottles of water to Flint residents.

She is living proof that you can make a change at any age.


Attention scholars! As we prepare to close out Black History Month in the next couple of days, we invite you all to an exciting opportunity to show us what you know! Join us for the Black History Month trivia challenge this Friday at 3:30 PM! Information will be going out to your email this week about how to sign up and participate. We will have some awesome prizes for our top finishers! Hope to see you there!

Tonight we recognize Mr. X! Malcolm X was an African American leader in the civil rights movement, minister and supporter of Black nationalism. He urged his fellow Black Americans to protect themselves against white aggression “by any means necessary,” a stance that often put him at odds with the nonviolent teachings of Martin Luther King, Jr.

His charisma and oratory skills helped him achieve national prominence in the Nation of Islam, a belief system that merged Islam with Black nationalism. After Malcolm X’s assassination in 1965, his bestselling book, The Autobiography of Malcolm X, popularized his ideas and inspired the Black Power movement.

Malcolm X was born Malcolm Little on May 19, 1925 in Omaha, Nebraska. His mother was the National recording secretary for the Marcus Garvey Movement which commanded millions of followers in the 1920s and 30s. His father was a Baptist minister and chapter president of The Universal Negro Improvement Association.

Hey lion family! We want to be sure to share information and resources to help you all stay safe during this time. Check out these three graphics about the Memphis Boil Water Advisory currently in effect and bottled water distribution locations!


Tonight we reflect on sacrifices made for the freedom and ascension of African Americans. Harriet Tubman was an American abolitionist and political activist. She escaped and subsequently made some 13 mission to rescue approximately 70 enslaved people including friends and family. Harriet Tubman used what is known as the underground railroad to help free these slaves.​She was the first woman to lead a combat assault.

The Black feminist, writer, activist, poet, mother, warrior Audre Lorde (1934-1992) was a native New Yorker and daughter of immigrants. Both her activism and her published work speak to the importance of struggle for liberation among oppressed peoples and of organizing in coalition across differences of race, gender, sexual orientation, class, age and ability. An internationally recognized activist and artist, Audre Lorde was the recipient of many honors and awards, including the Walt Whitman Citation of Merit, which conferred the mantle of New York State poet for 1991-93. In designating her New York State’s Poet Laureate, Governor Mario Cuomo observed: “Her imagination is charged by a sharp sense of racial injustice and cruelty, of sexual prejudice…She cries out against it as the voice of indignant humanity. Audre Lorde is the voice of the eloquent outsider who speaks in a language that can reach and touch people everywhere.” Her works include:

A Burst Of Light
The Black Unicorn
Between Ourselves
Cables To Rage
The Cancer Journals
The First Cities
From A Land Where Other People Live
I Am Your Sister: Black Women Organizing Across Sexualities
Le***an Party: An Anthology
Need: A Chorale For Black Women Voices
The New York Head Shop And Museum
Our Dead Behind Us: Poems
Sister Outsider: Essays And Speeches
The Marvelous Arithmetics Of Distance: Poems
Undersong: Chosen Poems Old And New
Uses Of The Erotic: The Erotic As Power
