As the BRIGHT Award event founder and organizer, I take pride in what BRIGHT means. Each honoree is Bold, Respectful, Intelligent, Gifted, Hardworking, and a Treasure to the community. They have stepped above and beyond societal norms and succeed at becoming productive pillars in the community. These are individuals that I would like my future children to admire. Generational curses and stereotypes do not stand a chance against these six amazing people. I thank them for their countless days of hard work that they have done and the ones that they face. I thank them for not giving up when situations or circumstances around them seemed to be unbearable. I thank them for doing what they do not because they have to, but simply because it is truly the desires of their hearts.

Join The Cincinnati Herald on Saturday, April 18 from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. at The Marquee Ballroom and Event Center to show that we all support them and their endeavors. The Marquee Ballroom and Event Center is located at 9832 Hamilton Avenue, Cincinnati, OH 45231. The event is hosted by Cincinnati’s own comedian Bigg Booman, and entertainment will be provided by DJ Magnificent.
