Historic Black Towns and Settlements Alliance
Mayor Johnny Ford and Mayors from 4 other historical Black towns announce formation of the “Historic Black Towns and Settlements
Alliance” on April 18th in Tuskegee. I am proud to be working with this group as a contributor with regard to cultural affairs.
Johnny Ford, the Dean of Black Mayors initiating this historic alliance, is great. Mayor Ford and our own Rev. Judge L. Stringer were founding members of the National Conference of Black Mayor’s, and Mayor Ford has played a leading role in establishing the World Conference of Mayors. He was the first black man elected mayor in Alabama over 40 years ago. He wants to share what he knows with us and give us the extra help we need for such a time as this.
