Happy Monday Folks!
Over the weekend, the Crown Heights Community Mediation Center along with Save Our Streets Crown Heights and Camba celebrated Black History Month with a festival that was open to all. Located at 164 Albany House Community Center, the celebration included activities from learning how to wrap your hair with head wraps to an art station, an intense game of Black Jeopardy where the categories ranged from African American’s First to Going to Wakanda, and we were able to wrap up the event with a great panel that included our very own Kenton Kirby who is the Director of Make it Happen and Director of Clinical & Trauma Support Services at the Mediation Center, Imani Keith Henry who is a Diversity Trainer & Organizational Development Consultant and the founder of Equality for Flatbush Project, and Cheryl Donald who is a New York State licensed Marriage & Family Therapist, Life Coach and Public Health Official.
Thank you to all who participated and celebrated Black Excellence with us! Together, we were able to remember and honor the Black Americans who have contributed to our nation and have paved the way for racial justice. Check out the photos of the event below:
