A joint collaboration with Roxanna Young, the then Associate Director of the NYC KDT branch. The “Community of Color” Black History Month World Culture Celebration draws people of all ethnic and racial backgrounds together to honor community, black history and world culture. The main objective is to create a climate for conversation, appreciation, and graciousness among people from different backgrounds. The Community of Color Honors Awards were created to publicly acknowledge and honor those who dare to make a positive change in society.
