Bronx, NY--State Senator José M. Serrano and Congressman José E. Serrano today honored four exceptional local community leaders in their annual celebration of Black History Month.

Heastie, Assemblyman of the 83rd NYS Assembly District and The Bronx County Democratic Party Chair; Karen Washington, President of NYC Community Garden Coalition; and Deirdre Scott, Executive Director of The Bronx Council of the Arts.
