Again this year, Dane participated in his school's Black History Oratorical. He advanced through 3 rounds to make it to the night time performance. His poem was, "My Country," by Curtis Mayfield. He did a great job with it! His enunciation was wonderful as were his gestures and voice control. (See video below to judge for yourself.)

All 56 performers were given a lovely certificate for just having the courage to get on stage and perform!

Nanny came to hear Dane. She was a proud Nanny that night!
Afterwards, we all went to Freddie's to celebrate with a burger and custard.
