Welcome to our February 15, 2021 Issue
This month, the nation celebrates Black History Month, although here at Black
Westchester we celebrate the achievements of African-Americans every month because as Black People we make history 365/24/7. With that said we welcome you to our Black History Month issue.
We dedicate this issue to Ms. Cicely Tyson who was the Epitome of Black Excellence (pages 14-15 and 21) and celebrate another son of Mount Vernon we lost just before publishing this issue, Sugar Hill, Lew Hill (page 7). Our guest columnist Dennis Richmond Jr, wrote a series of article in celebration of Black History (page 8) and we have another powerful article by Rehan Sabri (page 18). We also re-published an article we ran two years ago on the website by James A. Johnson (page 20). Damon K. Jones wrote another article for our new Health and Wellness section (page 23). We celebrate the achievements of several African-Americans in Westchester like Senate Majority Leader Andrea Stewart-Cousins, Mayor Ronald Blackwood and William Voris (page 24), a few sistahs in Westchester who are making and attempting to make history like Tasha Young and Vivian Mackenzie (page 6) and as always we bring you the news with the black point of view!
Look out for our new edition to PBP Radio, our Super Tuesdays Show where we will be interviewing several candidates in Westchester running for office, 6PM every Tuesday!
