Niagara Falls, NY - An audience member likes what he hears as Master and Mistress of Ceremonies Eric Rigg of Niagara University and Mia Maye of Niagara Falls High School kick off a Black History program at Niagara Falls City Hall. The Highland Community Revitalization Committee and the City of Niagara Falls held a black history event titled "Black History… it started in Africa." In addition to a host of guest speakers the African Union Flag, behind, was raised.
