ELIZABETH – Union County’s Black History Month Kick-off Reception has been rescheduled for Friday, Feb. 15 at 1 p.m. at the Union County College Kellogg Building, 40 West Jersey St in Elizabeth. The postponement comes due to the inclement weather caused by Winter Storm Nemo.
The Kick-off Reception is set to include an exciting talk about Black History by Rev. H. William Rutherford Jr., past President of the New Jersey State Conference of the NAACP, as well as a summary of other Black History Month events taking place throughout the County, and the first presentation of the Chester Holmes Humanitarian Award.
The Award, created by the Freeholder Board in honor of the late, former Freeholder Chester Holmes, will be presented to Ella S. Teal, of the Urban League of Union County.
Detailed information on Black History Month Events happening throughout Union County is available on the Union County Black History Month website, www.ucnj.org/black-history.
