Carey Davis was sworn in as the new Mayor of San Bernardino, and joined newly-inaugurated city council members in a festive standing-room-only celebration filled with talk of new hope for the city's future. Matt Guilhem reports.
In our weekly "State of the Cities" segment, Mayor Sarah Zamora introduces us to the City of Colton. Zamora talks about who lives and works in Colton, and about the unusual way she got to be mayor. Next week, we'll feature Part 2 of our interview with Mayor Zamora.
Some 30 years ago, Inland Empire residents Hardy and Cheryl Brown bought a small black newspaper and over the years grew it into one of the most widely-circulated community newspapers in the region. Now a California State Assemblywoman representing the San Bernardino Valley, Cheryl Brown talks with KVCR's Ken Vincent about the history of the black press in the IE -- much of it personal to her and her family. This is Part 1 of a two-part interview.
In Part 2 of her interview with KVCR's Ken Vincent, former local newspaper publisher -- now an IE state legislator -- Cheryl Brown talks about her family’s efforts to get young people interested in documenting and disseminating black history.
Be sure to listen to Part 1 of our interview -- also posted on this page -- where Assemblywoman Brown recounts the history of the black press in the IE.
