Frenchtown Celebrates Black History

The celebration of Black History month is underway in Frenchtown.

As dozens gathered inside the Lawrence-Gregory Community Center. Listening to song and dance while hearing motivational speakers talk about the importance of youth. And how they can make a difference in today's community.

The event was free and open to the public. It featured song and dance from the F.A.B.U.L.O.U.S. Step/Dance Team and Black on Black Rhyme

    It is a sad truth: No matter what black people do or accomplish in life they will never get full credit from white people. White people will always have something negative to say.
