NEW ROCHELLE -

New Rochelle High School students kicked off Black History Month by collaborating with prominent civil rights leader Marc Morial.

Morial, president of the National Urban League, a historic civil rights organization, reminded students to keep an open mind about where people come from. The 45-minute program included an interactive trivia game, which also tested the teens' knowledge of current events.

"It's the contributions of all that make America strong, and make America unique, and will help this nation become the multiracial, multiethnic democracy, that we're on a path to become in the 21st century," Morial told News 12.
