MIAMI (WSVN) - Miami-Dade County is celebrating Black History Month with a new exhibition.

The county’s Black Affairs Advisory Board, which advocates for the needs of Miami-Dade’s diverse, minority and ethnic communities unveiled it at County Hall, Monday.

This year’s theme focuses on the Black family and highlights those of county commissioners.

“Seeing those wonderful families, the people that our county commissioners think about when they’re sitting on the desk, knowing that each one is grounded and rooted in our community, it actually makes us feel as though they’re representing not only their families but all of our families,” said Miami-Dade’s Black Affairs Advisory Board Chairman Stephen Hunter Johnson.

Miami-Dade County Mayor Daniella Levine Cava also attended the celebration.

Black History Month runs through the end of February.
