The 2018 Pasadena Red, Black & Green Honors was an amazing night of conversation, communication, and celebration to bring in the new year while recognizing the contributions of community leaders of the past and future. 

The evening was emceed by Pasadena Community Service Supervisor, Jarvis Emerson. who plays an intricate role in the Red, Black & Green as well as the Black History Month celebrations going on every February.

The crowd of a few hundred people that were entertained by the Love History Workshop who took us all on a ride through Black history in the United States of America.

The night was highlighted by the presentation of the 2018 Grand Marshalls, Ishmael Trone, Ishmael Trone a certified licensed tax preparer and Notary Public who has served the Pasadena community as a businessman and entrepreneur for over 30 years. and Youth Grand Marshall Nicole Bernard, who is very active with city council member Tyron Hampton while she is studying for her Bachelor's degree.

Overall the night was a blast and new relationships were formed. Some saw people they hadn't seen in years while others were exposed to a unity and pride they hadn't seen yet.

This was the beginning of the Black History celebrating in the City of Pasadena, so look forward to upcoming events and plan to participate.
