The audience will also hear from guest speaker Florida Representative Perry Thurston and School Board member Dr. Rosalind Osgood.
The evening will be lead by one of Broward’s favorite sons of the community, Bobby Henry, Sr., publisher of the Westside Gazette newspaper. Entertainment includes song-stress Melissa “Moonchild” Stokes, comedian extraordinaire Lady T, who helps the drive home in the afternoons on Hot 105, the “Parable Mime Ministries and DJ sounds donated by All Aboard Productions.
