11/23/2020: Callaway High Students Selected to Meet Hamilton Musical's Cast and Crew Hamilton

CHS Seniors Messiah Brown & Tamyra Dukes have been selected by the Hamilton Education Program to participate in a Zoom event with the cast & crew of the musical Hamilton. They were selected based on their March 2020 performance piece that was submitted as an entry for the Hamilton Education Program contest. The contest was part of a program CHS US History students completed in the spring on the Revolutionary & Constitutional Periods of history in preparation for a scheduled performance of the musical in Atlanta that was later cancelled due to the COVID 19 pandemic. In preparation for the tasks, students analyzed primary sources & studied the making of the musical Hamilton. Brown & Dukes rap performance piece depicted the duel between Aaron Burr & Alexander Hamilton that resulted in Hamilton's death. They will participate in the Hamilton Zoom event in early December.
