Memphis Black Arts Alliance

Hello and welcome to the new KQ blog section. Here we will highlight our KQ programs, events, and of course the accomplishments of our KQ students, families, and staff.

It’s the month of February, which means it is also time to celebrate Black History. During this time, the Extended Learning Academy students and staff have been learning more about the great African American men and women who have fought throughout history for many of the freedoms we enjoy today. Students from Main Site, Gaston, and College Park were all tested in our annual friendly competition the Knowledge Bowl. Vocals were performed by the talented Memphis Black Arts Alliance group, Souls-A-FIRE, who performed the song “Glory” and the very amazing songstress, Deborah Manning Thomas, who performed the historic black national anthem “Lift Every Voice and Sing.”


Songstress: Deborah Thomas

We want to thank all our KQ students and families for coming out and supporting our students at this amazing event! We hope to see you again in the near future!
