On Feb. 24, a group of high schoolers from the Booker T. Washington T-Connection Marching Band performed outside the Hammer Center in celebration of Black History Month.
The group is called the BTW “high-steppin” because according to the Tulsa World, “the marchers’ knees reach 45- and 90-degree angles.”
Under the direction of Harold Craig, who is in his seventeenth year directing the BTW band, the students are set for success.
“[They] wanted to showcase a historically black high school here in Tulsa,” Craig said. “They asked us to come out and play to showcase our culture and our style of what we do and how we do it.”
