Black Westchester October 15, 2020 – The Digital Version


Welcome to our October 15, 2020 Issue, the digital version.

Let me start off by encouraging every registered voter to get out and vote like your life depends on it because it does. Early Voting starts Saturday, October 24th. If you can and are able participate in early voting. If not request your absentee ballot now, fill it out and mail it in or drop off at Board of Election as soon as possible, please do not wait until the last minute.

I hope you enjoys this issue as much as we did putting it together. We dedicate this issue to the tenth anniversary of the death of Pace University student Danroy ‘DJ’ Henry. Black Westchester stands with the Henry family in their fight for justice and we will continue to #SayHisName. See our tribute to him on pages 14-15.

October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month. We urge every to get tested. Early detection includes doing monthly breast self-exams, and scheduling regular clinical breast exams and mammograms. Many breast cancer symptoms are invisible and not noticeable without a professional screening, but some symptoms can be caught early just by being proactive about your breast health. October is also National Domestic Violence Awareness Month, and purple is the symbolic color to raise awareness about domestic violence.

We would like to take this time to thank all the readers, listeners, supporters, sponsors, contributors, and advertisers for their support in our effort to deliver the “News With The Black Point Of View,” since 2014.
Send us your feedback, let us know what you think of this issue. Let us know subjects/topics you would like to see us cover in the future and send your letters to the editor to

Make sure you register to vote, then VOTE like you’re life depends of it because it does, this is the most important election of our life and please don’t forget to fill out the 2020 Census!

Peace and Blessings
