Field Trip- Feb. 19, 2016
On Friday, February 19, 2016, McKinley’s Freshman Academy will travel to see “Race,” the Jesse Owens Biographic Film. We are excited about this opportunity to expand our knowledge and celebrate Black History Month. Students may get permission slips from their Social Studies teachers beginning on Tuesday, February 2, 2016.
Race is based on the incredible true story of Jesse Owens, the legendary athletic superstar whose quest to become the greatest track and field athlete in history thrusts him onto the world stage of the 1936 Olympics, where he faces off against Adolf Hitler’s vision of Aryan supremacy. Race is an enthralling film about courage, determination, tolerance, and friendship, and an inspiring drama about one man’s fight to become an Olympic legend.
