On February 29, as Black History Month was coming to a close, the Far Rockaway Library hosted a black history celebration that included music, readings by area residents and free food prepared by Chef Marion Moses. Also attending the event were representatives from R.W.A., and Brooklyn Wrestling who announced they would be bringing wrestling to the peninsula with a free show at Goldie Maple Academy on March 16.



Food, prepared by Chef Marion Moses (second from right), included rice, black eyed peas, fried chicken, and macaroni and cheese. Food, prepared by Chef Marion Moses (second from right), included rice, black eyed peas, fried chicken, and macaroni and cheese.
