Superintendent Jonathan Ponds; Dr. Christopher Irving, Acting Assistant Commissioner of Field Services for the New Jersey Department of Education; and Montclair Public Schools administrators attended Montclair High School’s Black History Month event, Mon., February 27.

The High School’s Center for Social Justice, in collaboration with the Civics and Government Institute, Black Student Union and the STEM Academy, hosted Montclair’s Premiere Dance Theater for an artistic expression of culture and community to culminate the celebration of Black History Month. 

The event was followed by a Q&A session led by Seton Hall professor, Reverend Dr. Forrest Pritchett. Rev. Pritchett is a long-time civil rights activist, mentor, and adviser. With 53 years of experience in higher ed, including his over 40-year career at Seton Hall, which began in 1978, he currently serves as the director of the Martin Luther King, Jr. Leadership Program and the senior adviser to the provost for diversity, equity, and inclusion.
