I’m fresh back from Washington D.C. and this year’s Annual Legislative Caucus hosted by the Congressional Black Caucus.

While I was there, I attended a braintrust hosted by L.A.’s Congresswoman Diane Watson on Black images in the media featuring two of L.A. who’s who, newly elected NNPA President and publisher of the Los Angeles Sentinel Danny Bakewell Sr. and Our Weekly publisher and NNPA Secretary Natalie Cole.

Rep. Watson presented Mr. Bakewell with a special award for his continued commitment to Black people and for all of his work in L.A. and abroad.
