The Buffalo Common Council recognized Black History Month Tuesday with a poetry reading from local seventh grader, Randi Noble.
Noble, who attends St. John the Baptist School in Tonawanda, read a poem entitled "I stand" by Akili Amina. She said the poem means a lot to her and it really helps people understand the importance of Black History Month.
"I'm honored to be in this position and I just hope I get more opportunities to do this, because I love to do this. I love to read and It's black history month and that's really important to me," said Noble.
