In recognition of Black History Month, our February “A Night at the Museum” event will focus on the African American influence and experience at OPRF High School from the first two Black students who graduated in 1923 to the growing African American population over the last 50 years. 

Doors open at 7 p.m. Wednesday, Feb. 7, for a free open house to see the exhibit “Ever Changing, Yet the Same: OPRF High School at 150” at Oak Park River Forest Museum. From 7:30 to 8:30 p.m. we’ll hear from a panel of educators including OPRF High School Principal Lynda Parker, AP History teacher Dr. Tyrone Williams; OPRF graduate, English teacher and coach Scyla Baielli; and head of OPRF’s APPLE parent organization, Melanie McQueen. The discussion will be moderated by Wendy Daniels, OPRF Museum board vice president.
