Students create living wax museum for Black History Month

Several students at Military and Global Leadership Academy in Charlotte made their gym and hallways a "living wax museum" Wednesday in celebration of Black History Month.

They dressed as famous figures -- including Muhammad Ali, Harriet Tubman and Bill Cosby -- and recited facts as they mingled with other students.

The kids, grades K-12, spent the month preparing for the event by reading biographies, doing research and other projects and also delivering a one-minute speech during wax museum event.
