“The opportunity to host a Black History Celebration with the Town of North Brentwood is exciting because it presents an important opportunity for residents to learn more about the town’s rich history and the contributions of its earliest settlers. Additionally, we will have performances from some of our County’s most notable creatives. It promises to be an inspiring afternoon and I encourage District 2 residents to join us.”
