From the Greater Norristown Police Athletic League:
Today, Tuesday, Feb. 5, at 6:30 p.m., Greater Norristown PAL (GNPAL) will host a panel titled, "Balancing the Scales: Minorities Accessing Equal & Equivalent Social Justice" in honor of Black History Month.
This Black History program panel, moderated by KYW 1060 reporter Cherri Greg, will feature Keir Bradford Grey, the first African-American Chief Public Defender of Montgomery County, and Kenya Mann Faulkner, Inspector General of Pennsylvania. Both represent the first African-American Women in their respective positions.
Other panelists, equally impressive in their respective occupations, include:
- Michael Coard, founder of Avenging the Ancestors Coalition (ATAC);
- Rochelle Culbreath, first woman president of Norristown Municipal Council;
- Pastor Marshall Mitchell, principal of a Different Drummer, LLC (promotional campaign for Red Tails and Waiting for Superman);
- Judge Garrett D. Page, second African-American Montgomery County judge;
- Judge Cheryl Austin, first African-American woman judge in Montgomery County history
The Panel is diverse in age and career path, but they all continue to have a direct impact on policy and law. These panelists are African-American "high achievers," despite their career and life obstacles.
The program is free and open to children, adolescents and adults. GNPAL is located at 340 Harding Blvd. For additional information, contact PAL PRogram Director Kenneth A. Fennal at firstname.lastname@example.org or 610-278-8040, ext. 18.
