A Night of Empowerment
The Village Free Press is proud to present our inaugural list of Living Black History Makers and Living Legacies. We are honoring these pioneering mayors, history makers and living legacies during an evening of empowerment, food, drinks and networking. Event tickets are $50. The proceeds will benefit Village Free Press.
The Pioneering Mayors, The History Makers and Living Legacies that will be honored:
Recognizing 'African American Mayoral Firsts'
Andre Harvey, Bellwood Mayor
Katrina Thompson, Broadview Mayor
Edwenna Perkins, Maywood Mayor
The History Makers
The first five individuals are people who helped create local history in Proviso Township in 2018. The Living Legacies are individuals who have created spheres of influence in their communities over a number of years.
The Living Legacies
These five community leaders have quietly made their presence felt in the township over a number of years and have created enduring local legacies in their respective spheres of influence that have benefited current residents.
