The Progressive Women's Association of Harrison County came together to celebrate the past.
February is Black History Month and the PWA hosted a luncheon to honor black heritage in our area. The PWA meets every February to talk about and pay tribute to the history of the black culture in our community.
Minister Debra Helm told 5 News it's a way for all residents to come together.
"I think it's an opportunity for us to come together in the community as an inclusive neighborhood and appreciating and celebrating our cultures," she said.
The Black Heritage luncheon every February is just one of the many events held in Harrison County.
"Throughout the years we've had a lot of different observations that we hold and a lot of good programs that the community wants," said Board of Directors member, Rosalyn Alonso.
The PWA is an organization that promotes and celebrates all cultures in our community.
