BRIDGEPORT, Conn. -- Bridge House, a psychosocial rehabilitation Clubhousin Bridgeport, celebrated Black History Month during its annual celebration with the help of The Amistad Center for Art & Culture.

Stacey Queen, Education Associate and Art Historian from The Amistad Center, presented members of the Clubhouse with a Black Identity and History presentation after the Clubhouse Choir sang a few member favorites. The celebration began with an authentic "soul food" lunch which was made homemade by members and staff in-house and ended with homemade dessert.
