RCHS juniors travel to Virginia Beach to see Hamilton

Thursday, December 19, 2019

Most of RCHS's juniors travelled to Virginia Beach today to see a Broadway production of Hamilton at Chrysler Hall.

Ahead of this event, these students used primary sources from the Gilder Lehrman Institute to research early American history, specifically the American Revolution and the Federalist Era. Under the instruction of history teacher Kristin Baber, they used their research to create original performance pieces on a person or event from this time. Student performances included skits, monologues, poems, songs, and raps.

Lux Aghomo, Chidy Akunwafor, and Keighton Bell were selected to represent RCHS by performing their "Patrick Henry Rap" as part of the Hamilton Education Program.
