Mount Olive High School's

National English Honor Society

Creates Periodic Table of Black History 


To celebrate Black History Month, Mount Olive High School’s National English Honor Society created a Periodic Table of Black History. The National English Honor Society members worked together virtually to research and create each of the periodic table elements. Each of these elements represent the accomplishments of Black authors, artists, musicians, athletes, politicians, scientists, and activists. The elements exhibit both historical and present day achievements.


Ms. Alexandra Tate, the National English Honor Society advisor, is excited to see this much representation in our hallways. She says, “I wanted to highlight the milestones and elements of Black History to show students that they are capable of anything. Each person on the periodic table was once a student, too. These role models can encourage students to feel limitless in what they can accomplish.” On the periodic table you will see the achievements of Jason Reynolds, Simone Biles, Oprah Winfrey, Katherine Johnson, Martin Luther King, Jr., and Roxanne Gay, among many others.

The Periodic Table of Black History is displayed on the first floor for all students to visit. Mount Olive’s National English Honor Society was inspired to create this display by the Lakeland Public Library in Lakeland, Florida.
