Trenton African American Pride Festival Today!!

      Today I will be watching a childhood favorite band...Brand Nubian performing their hit's like "Slow Down" and I can't wait.

     Last year L.A. Parker, who said he was inspired to lead the effort for the TAAPF by my effort to save the Trenton St. Patrick's Day Parade, wrote a post-festival column and stated that he didn't see many White people there and wrote that he hopes that changes next year (paraphrasing). 

     I certainly express the same sentiment. Let's not forget about the word "American" in this festival's's for all of us: Whites, Latinos, Asians, Arab and any mixture you can think of..ALL of us. 

    So let's all get together today and enjoy this wonderful new Trenton tradition!
