Congratulations to the Black History Committee Youth Award Recipients

Newburgh, NY: The Black History Committee (BHC) celebrated its Annual Youth Awards on Friday, February 6th. The awards ceremony was held at Inspire, 344 Gidney Avenue, Newburgh at 6:30 PM.

Each year the BHC recognizes youth of the African Diaspora for outstanding achievement in Scholarship, Leadership, Citizenship and Religious Commitment. The youth are selected by area churches, civic organizations and educational institutions.
