In honor of the numerous contributions African-Americans have made to our country, State Senator Gustavo Rivera, Congressmember José E. Serrano and St. Simon Stock Church will host a Black History Month Celebration on .
While the federal government continues its unrelenting attack against our immigrant communities, this event will serve as a unique opportunity to recognize and honor the lasting impact that these communities, especially those hailing from African and Caribbean nations, have had on New York City and on the Bronx. Throughout the event, participants will also be able to enjoy artistic performances, receive important information on critical services and resources available to them, and join elected officials in acknowledging the outstanding work of community members from the 33rd Senate District and 15th Congressional District.
