ramah 2


Some may not have known what an elocution was before Saturday, March 12. But they certainly did afterwards. That Sabbath evening, nine Ramah Junior Academy graduates presented speeches on various social issues that are important to the African American community. Abortion, teen pregnancy, stereotypes, and alcoholism are just a few of the topics addressed. The students used visual aids, props, and even a few live actors to bring their topics to life as they eloquently gave their take of sensitive community issues.


An elocution is a formal public speech, focusing on the art of delivery, similar to that of an oratorical speech. The students, under the guidance of Language Arts teacher, Victor Waller, wrote, organized, and rehearsed for months and delivered impressive presentations to an audience of family, teachers, peers. Adding to the beauty of the evening, three Grade 7 students made presentation which included two original poems and a flute rendition of James Weldon Johnson’s “Lift Ev’ry Voice and Sing”.


Congratulations Ranique Rhoden, Rayna Reid, Ronice Simms, Alexandria Jones, Makayla Mattocks, Maciah McCrimon, She'Rell Mitchell, Jordan Parks, and Martez Bonner! We heard you loud and clear. The next time you hear that Ramah is doing an elocution, be there!
