Supporting these Black-owned businesses in P’burg will strengthen our town


Letter by Lee Clark, Vice President Town Council, Phillipsburg 

Lee Clark Black History Month.jfif

When observing Black History month, we too often acknowledge the achievements of the great Black inventors and humanitarians, the giants who have shaped our society, and we forget the contributions of the decent people around us, our friends and neighbors who work hard and make a difference in our town and our lives every day. That's why Lee Clark's letter is so important. He understands the impact of local Black-owned businesses, and he lists some of those right here in town.
