Senator Jeff Klein Hosts Annual Black History Month Breakfast, Honoring African-American Leaders
BRONX, NY – State Senator Jeff Klein (D-Bronx/Westchester) hosted his annual Black History Month Breakfast at Villa Barone Manor this morning, honoring local black leaders and featuring a keynote address from Brooklyn Borough President Eric Adams. Nearly 300 constituents attended the breakfast.
Senator Klein said: "Black History Month provides an opportunity to not just reflect and recognize the achievements of civil rights leaders like Martin Luther King Jr. and Nelson Mandela, but also the contributions made by black leaders in their local communities. At my annual Black History Month breakfast, we do just that - honor the invaluable work of African-Americans here in the Bronx and across New York, while celebrating the rich diversity of our local community."
