SYRACUSE, N.Y. -- The Syracuse Chapter of the National Action Network is continuing to celebrate Black History Month.

Saturday they held their weekly meeting and were joined by guest speaker Onondaga County Executive Joanie Mahoney.

The National Action Network works to break down injustices that are in the community and Mahoney was there to celebrate Black History Month and answer whatever questions members had about things happening in the area.

Reverend James Thompson says the celebration of Black History month is important to continue throughout the year.

"Every day it is important to celebrate it. Because it's not just about naming a few people you may not know. Not oh, I just learned a new name. It's about community, it's about bringing all of our intelligence together," said James Thompson, Fountain of Life Church Reverend.

The Syracuse Chapter of the National Action Network meets every Saturday at 10 a.m.
