Los Angeles celebrates African-American Heritage Month
By: DailyNews  

Los Angeles officially kicked off African-American Heritage Month on Friday, honoring three actors and saluting the racial breakthrough by Jackie Robinson with the Los Angeles Dodgers.

With a theme of "Continuing the Dream: African-Americans at the Crossroads of Freedom and Equality," the city honored actor and Grammy winner LL Cool J, actor Danny Glover and actor LeVar Burton. They were presented with the Hope, Dream and Spirit Awards.

LL Cool J, who has become increasingly active in Los Angeles affairs, downplayed the individual honor for him. "It took teamwork to make the dream work," he said.

Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa presided over the ceremony in City Council chambers where he cited the "rich heritage of African-American in the city of Los Angeles.

"When this city was first founded by 44 settlers, 26 of the 44 traced their heritage back to Africa," Villaraigosa said. "This is a community that has been a crown jewel in this city."

The Dodgers will be celebrating the contributions of Robinson all this year, the team's senior vice president Renata Simril said.

Burton, who was acting mayor of Sherman Oaks, has been a fixture in the Los Angeles cultural scene beginning with his role as Kunta Kinte in the television series "Roots."

Glover has gained international respect for his wide-reaching community activism and philanthropic efforts.

The heritage month program also marks the start of a poster contest open to all students in Los Angeles County. A number of other events are planned and information on specific activities is available at culturela.org.
