Oliver/Lang Day is a celebration in honor of two influential Shabazz community members who brought joy to themselves and others through food and music.
Dennis Oliver taught French at East High and had agreed to expand to Shabazz to teach students interested in learning the language. Kurt Lang was a Shabazz student who had a passion for all things French. The rest is history which you can read here .
This year students will celebrate Oliver/Lang Day on Thursday, April 26. Activities will include a Community Lunch, ukulele lessons presented by Madison Area Ukulele Initiative (MAUI), and a performance by the band DISQ featuring Shabazz alums Isaac De Broux-Slone and Raina Bock.
