Black History Month Celebration at Long Beach City Hall

Release Date: 2016-02-08

This past Tuesday, February 1st, 2016, Black History Month was celebrated in style alongside other council districts, with council district 8 at the forefront of organizing.

After loosening our limbs together to the tune of African drums, we enjoyed some wonderful live singing and powerful words from our leadership. I had the pleasure of delivering a resonating message to those in attendance, highlighting the collective council efforts such as the My Brother's Keeper Program, which benefits young men of color.
