BrightStar Is Proud to Celebrate Black History Month

February is Black History Month.  This month and throughout the year, we help commemorate the contributions of African-Americans who have worked to positively shape our world and future.  As part of this effort, BrightStar is a proud sponsor of the annual Sistrunk Historic Festival, Parade & Gala.  The Sistrunk organization’s mission is to celebrate the historical and cultural contributions of people of African-American and Caribbean descent and their impact on the global community. The Sistrunk events are among the oldest African-American events in the Broward County area.  The Sistrunk Parade and Street Festival will be held on Saturday, February 26th.  More info is available at  The Sistrunk Gala will be held in a few months time, and we will announce those details later.

In addition, we are pleased to honor The Westside Gazette on their 40th anniversary.  The Westside Gazette is Broward County’s oldest and largest African American owned and operated newspaper.  Congratulations on 40 years of “Faith, Family & Community!”  We also join The Westside Gazette in honoring Florida’s four historically black colleges and universities.  You can see our ads below.
