Last night I had the pleasure of judging one of the toughest competitions I have seen in a while. The Zora Neale Hurston Oratorical Competition for the Archonette Club of the Zeta Phi Beta Sorority, Inc Sigma Kappa Zeta Chapter. The young ladies performed speeches admirably and represented Madame Rosa Parks in a way she would surely be proud of. Hats off to the ladies for their mentorship of what is surely the next crop of great leaders. I was joined by Congresswoman Yvette Clark Senator Eric Adams, and Council member Charles Barron Lets Go BedStuy!
