Rep. Grace Meng, back row standing, with members of the community she honored for Black History Month at Latimer Gardens Community Center in Flushing Monday night.

Shown seated are Sharon Banks, left, Brandi Covington, Dr. Evelyn Julmisse and Marie Adam-Ovide. In the back row are Marvin Jeffcoat, left, Courtney Cohen, Leroy Comrie, Mark Levy, Kenneth Cohen II and Assemblyman Jeff Aubry.

After Meng awarded the citations, the group watched the movie “Freedom Riders,” a documentary that chronicles the six- month period in 1961, when 400 black and white Americans challenged racial segregation in the Deep South.

Welcome to the discussion.
