Live! Casino celebrates Black History Heroes Awards

In celebration of Black History Month, The Cordish Companies' Live! Casino & Hotel and the Md. Washington Minority Companies Association (MWMCA) last night celebrated the 5th annual Black History Heroes Awards. The ceremony, held at Live! Center Stage, recognized ten Maryland and DC business and community leaders who have contributed to their communities and citizens in a positive way.

Maryland Lt. Governor Boyd K. Rutherford, one of the evening's honorees, also served as the keynote speaker. He discussed the legacies of historical influential African Americans with ties to Maryland, including Harriet Tubman, Thurgood Marshall and Frederick Douglass, whose contributions to society transcend race, nationality and religion. Rutherford also said while much progress has been made for equal rights and equality, it is important to remember this month that there is still much more that needs to be done.
